Chloe 2012 Red No. 249 blossoms from classic grape varietals cultivated in prized vineyards on Californias North Coast to create an elegant, rich and complex red blend. An enticing nose precedes deep layers of expressive, dark fruit flavors blended with notes of rich espresso and spice on the palate. A full, luxurious mouth feel gives way to an alluring and lingering finish. Named after the 249 wine lots that winemaker Georgetta Dane tasted to achieve a sophisticated intensity of flavor, this wine shows soft, integrated tannins and structure imparted from new and used French and American oak.
