Chronicle Cerise Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, 2006

I have had Cerise Vineyard Pinots before but from Saintsbury rather than Chronicle. As the name suggests, all have been brimming with the smells and flavors of fresh cherries.

Medium light. Cranberries as well as cherries. Also some vanilla and spice. Ripe cherry flavors with cranberry acidity. Good intensity but probably not as complex or complete as the Saintsbury. Chronicle's wine is made from a multi-clone part of the vineyard; Saintsbury's is from high on the slope and primarily Dijon and Pommard clones.
