Located between 800 and 1,200 feet above the floor of Anderson Valley, Chronicle’s Cerise Vineyard spans forty acres of steep slopes and small blocks, with optimal exposure to both fog and cooling breezes from the ocean. The site consistently produces grapes that epitomize what we love about Anderson Valley fruit – great complexity with abundant dark fruit tones, substantial tannins, and an underlying sweetness. With bright pure flavors and plenty of natural acidity (necessary characteristics for elegant, balanced Pinots), the 2007 Cerise Vineyard Pinot Noir was the standout wine of the vintage for Chronicle Wines.

Wine Enthusiast magazine scored the Pinot Noir a stunning, but well-deserved, 96 Points: “Crisp in acidity, with a silky, elegant texture, it shows complex flavors of cherries, raspberries, cola, orange zest, Asian spices, and earthy rhubarb. It’s dry, but with a rich, fruity-oaky sweetness. Delicious and compelling.” The 2007 Pinot Noir’s intriguing herbal aromas and rich fruit flavors are supported by its incredible lift, structure, and dense tannins on the lingering finish.
