The 2017 Pinot Noir Chimera is gorgeous. Dark, deeply spiced and pliant, the 2017 possesses terrific balance and plenty of appeal. In this vintage, the Chimera is a bit more generous than it usually is, but that is not at all a bad thing for a wine that is meant to be enjoyed upon release. -Antonio Galloni, May 2019

This offers a well-structured core of dark fruit and olive flavors, interwoven with savory accents. Slate and spice details show on the firm finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,140 cases made. -Kim Marcus, Dec 2019

The pale to medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Chimera Vineyard, aged 11 months in 15% new French oak, is lightly scented of cranberries, dust, woodsmoke, black cherries, dried herbs and an earthy undercurrent. It’s medium-bodied with a good fruit core, a grainy frame and great freshness on the long finish. One of the better efforts from Capiaux this vintage. 1,140 cases produced. -Erin Brooks, Dec 2019
