The new Chimera from Capiaux is one of the finest Russian River Pinots out there for the money. Don't miss!

94 Points Vinous: "The Capiaux 2021 Pinot Noir Chimera is a rich, heady wine. A burst of dark red cherry, plum, lavender, rose petal and blood orange are all dialed up. This bold, generous Pinot delivers the goods, big time. It's a fabulous entry-level offering from Sean Capiaux, if that term can even be used here. The Chimera is mostly young vines from Starscape, with dollops from Widdoes, Pisoni and Garys’. Sean Capiaux's 2021 Pinot Noirs are impressive. They are the best wines I have ever tasted here. The 2021s offer a combination of fruit density and vibrancy that is absolutely compelling...This is a special vintage for Capiaux."
