2010 fulcrum on point chalone pinot noir
"Dark purple colors in the glass. Soft aromas of wild berry, earth and anise. Bold flavors of raspberry, blueberry and classic Chalone minerality. Big fruit on the mid-palate with a long vivid finish. Tannin and acid structure in balance and built to age. Bottled Unfiltered."
"Stylistically, our 2010's exemplify the Fulcrum balanced approach to Pinot Noir. Because ripeness is never in question in California, the challenge is to create complex wines that transcend the simple fruitiness of the grape. Our 2010 wines have the texture, depth, structure and intricacy that make them wines that you can enjoy now. However, these wines will invite you to linger over their aromas and flavors as they age and develop the broadest range of nuance." -Winery
