2021 Chamisal Vineyards Califa Pinot Noir
Much of the fruit for our Califa bottling comes from the eastern slopes of our famed Morrito block so it shares some of the characteristics of our flagship pinot. We also blend in fruit from some of the best blocks on the northern edge of our property to make this wine a little more forward and open. We are crafting a wine here that is the best combination of power and pleasure.
Our 2021 Califa Pinot Noir exudes a captivating allure. Its lifted nose is dominated by bright cranberry and raspberry, mingled with pomegranate, and rose petal. Subtle notes of vanilla and toasted hazelnut elevate its elegance. A soft palate reveals chewy tannins, hinting at depth and balance.
