Capiaux 'Chimera' Pinot Noir 2012
93  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 93"The 2012 Pinot Noir Chimera is the most subtle and layered of Sean Capiaux's three 2012 Pinots. Sweet tobacco, anise, herbs, red cherries, mint and licorice meld together as the 2012 opens up in the glass. This elegant, polished Pinot should drink well for at least another

Antonio Galloni 90"The 2012 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch is a pretty, mid-weight wine best suited for drinking over the next few years. Crushed flowers, savory herbs, menthol and sweet red cherries add nuance on the mid-weight finish. I am starting to believe the Keefer may turn out to be a better site
