Capiaux Cellars grape source Pisoni Vineyard in late summer

Antonio Galloni 94pts
The 2016 Pinot Noir Wilson Vineyard is a striking, multi-dimensional wine. Dark red and purplish fruit, savory herbs, licorice, and lavender all flesh out beautifully in the glass. This cool, late-ripening site tends to produce savory Pinots. There is plenty of aromatic finesse in the 2016, but also quite a bit of textural richness and depth to play off those elements. Powerful, explosive and full of character, the Wilson is another superb wine from Sean Capiaux. Drinking window 2020-2028. Reviewed Apr 2018

The 2016 Pinot Noir Widdoes Vineyard is a bold, pungent wine, with huge tannins that are going to need quite a bit of time to soften. Succulent black cherry, plum, lavender, game, mint and violet gradually reveal themselves, but only with great reluctance. In 2016, Sean Capiaux used about 10% stems, but the whole clusters are not especially evident. This imposing, brooding Pinot is in no mood to show all of its cards today. I don't remember the Widdoes ever being so intense. Drinking window 2020-2031. Reviewed Apr 2018

The 2016 Pinot Noir Chimera is laced with essence of sweet red cherry, underbrush, dried herbs, orange zest and exotic floral notes. Plump and juicy, yet also very much medium in body and gracious, with terrific freshness, the 2016 has much to offer. I would prefer to drink it over the next 7-10 years. A rush of dark red cherry, plum, mocha and licorice infuse the supple, inviting finish. Best of all, the Chimera is a terrific value. Reviewed Apr 2018

The 2016 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is one of the more open, giving wines in this range. Super ripe red cherry and plum fruit are pushed forward. Sweet floral and citrus overtones develop in the glass, adding attractive aromatic top notes, but this is a decidedly overt, racy style that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Drinking window 2018-2024. Reviewed Apr 2018

The 2016 Pinot Noir Starscape Vineyard is another dark, powerful wine. Potent tannins and dark-fleshed fruit give the wine its sepia-toned, brooding personality. The pedigree of these old Martini clone Pinot vines, planted in 1971, comes through in the wine's gravitas and intensity. I can't wait to taste the 2016 with some bottle age, once the tannins soften a bit. Drinking window 2020-2031. Reviewed Apr 2018.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard is sensual, racy and inviting. Silky tannins and a creamy palate feel yield a Pisoni of unusual finesse, which is quite remarkable for a site that in the past has tended to produce much darker and more potent wines than this. Hints of violet, lavender, spice and a dash of new oak add shades of nuance. Drinking window 2019-2026. Reviewed Apr 2018.

Earthy, sarsaparilla and raspberry flavors balance out the perfect tannin/acid ratio.
