Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute):

"Garnet color. Aromas and flavors of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, and baked cherries and beets with a satiny, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, plush vanilla and pepper kissed finish. A pure, flavorful, and elegant pinot for sipping or the table." (11/13)

Product Description:

"The Chime Sonoma Pinot Noir shows a dense bright purple color as well as a nose packed with cherry kirsch, white pepper spice, fresh tilled earth, and subtle vanilla wood aromas. The mouth feel is plump and loaded with savory fruit; finishing with an expansive luscious mouth feel." -Winery

WINERY:
"Chime is about finding the perfect combination of a dedicated grape grower, an appropriate cultivar and an artisan winemaker to deliver consumers the best possible wine nature will allow. Sometimes our relentless focus on Place, Grapes and People means that we don't make the best short term business decisions. We might bottle up a Dry Creek Cabernet as Sonoma Valley, for instance, or a Lodi Cabernet as California. We can live with this reality if it means that we are fulfilling our broader mission of delivering the best possible wine nature will allow."

"Phil Laramore refers to Pinot Noir as 'the wine of reflection' because the grape so faithfully reacts all the care that went into her creation, for better or worse...In any event, Chime started out as a place for great Pinot Noir growers to highlight their finest fruit, working in partnership with Phil and his team to craft the most faithful and beautiful, reflection of terroir, climate, and careful viticulture possible. And although the project has subsequently expanded to include great Chardonnay and Cabernet, Phil has never lost sight of his original mission: to deliver the best possible wine nature will allow." -Winery
