Chamisal

Pinot Noir lovers should migrate to the beautifully un-crowded Edna Valley where the coastal influence is ideal for Burgundy varietals like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Chamisal does it with big bold intense and forward flavors. It’s clear their winemaker likes variety yet produces wines that are balanced and refined.

Chamisal Chardonnays cover the best of both worlds for those who like oaked and unoaked styles. Theirs are polar opposites. Then, their Califa (meaning “Prettiest One”) has the tangy fuit of an unoaked yet the body and structure of a lightly oaked Chardonnay. Their Pinot Noirs are great representation of the soft supple flavors of this grape with the complexity of a true Californian. Everything on the menu is well done and exemplary flavors showing off Edna Valley’s potential.
