Chanticleer Announces Release of 2012 Sangiovese
2012 was a great year for Napa Valley wines in general, and the Chanticleer Sangiovese is no exception. Our Sangiovese fans will LOVE this wine. This vintage exhibits the excellence our discriminating clients have come to expect! It is a great example of this old varietal in the new world. The 2012 Sangiovese is aromatic and complex with notes of boysenberry, rhubarb, strawberry jam, cinnamon, clove, creamy vanilla and toasty oak A small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon adds an element of depth and structure.

2011 Chanticleer Cabernet Released to Elite Wine Club
The 2011 has a dark, brooding color, excellent black cherry aromas & texture and supple yet firm tannins meant for aging. It is full bodied and has an excellent mid-palate and a long smooth finish.
This is the smallest vintage of Chanticleer Cabernet that we have released in some time - only 345 cases produced. A relatively cool summer with two heat spikes and an early fall delayed maturity and produced a smaller yield, but allowed for long hang time and excellent flavor development. The entire production of this wine was allocated to our Elite Wine Club members.
