Since 1995 Chameleon Cellars has produced small lots of wine from select sustainably farmed vineyards in Californias premiere winegrowing regions. Originally formed as a partnership between producer Owsley Brown III and Winemaker Jeff Popick, Chameloen is now wholly owned by the Magnanimus Wine Group as a respected addition to their green portfolio of wines. Beginning in 2005, Owsley and Jeff began working with the consultation of Magnanimus winemaking team Steve Ryan and Paolo Caciorgna to refine the Chameleon wines and further blend old and new world winemaking style. These wines are crafted in a refreshing and fruity style that makes them great food wines. The aim is to retain the natural acidity and flavors for which Cal-Ital and Rhone style varietals are well known. – Description from markomkc

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Chameleon Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Darden Vineyard 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Fabulous wine at a very attractive price! This is what Cabernet is all about: harmony, pretty fruit, judicious oak and great acidity. Why aren't there more wines like this out there? Read More

  • Chameleon Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Not usually a fan of Petit Syrah, but this one was lighter than most. Easy to drink...of course would be perfect with some red meat on the side. Read More

  • Chameleon Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Really delicious. A dead ringer for porterhouse doused in butter on the nose. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Not as inky and thick as PS can be. The bottle disappeared quite quickly. Read More
