Chasseur Wines is dedicated to small lot, hand-crafted wines in the old French tradition with emphasis on vineyard designates. Their small size (presently about 2,700 cases) allows complete control over the winemaking process, therefore, enabling us to produce the finest wines the fruit has to offer.

Wine Advocate

William Hunter's third generic Pinot Noir is the 2009 Russian River. It reveals a dark ruby/purple color (similar to the Sonoma cuvee) as well as sweet boysenberry and black cherry fruit, a fleshy, concentrated mouthfeel and excellent acidity, freshness and body. This beauty should drink well for 5-6 years. Both the Sonoma and Russian River efforts enjoy impressive levels of concentration in 2009.

Score: 91. —Robert Parker, February 2011.
