We've had mixed luck with Chalone reds in the past (in contrast to their whites, some of which have been memorable), but this medium-bodied Pinot Noir is tasty. Not big, but it has good ripeness, round mouth feel, well-balanced and pure cherry-tinged fruit flavors, smoky oak, a touch of earthiness. (Price approximate.) - WB Team 2003-01-25
