Smooth Pinot Noir, great year
This is my favorite of all Pinot Noirs. I've been trying different county wines and years, but when CH released this limited lot, I had to try a case. Simply the best, so far!
Middle of The Road Pinot
Not great out of the bottle, but I let this pinot breathe a bit & I was able to enjoy it. I've had better pinots at $17/per....
My first sip of this luscious wine tasted of the Earth, which for me was very pleasing. I let the wine rest awhile and was rewarded with a deeply penetrating dark fruit that both teased and satisfied me. Oh how I love Pinot Noir and this particular one made me very happy that I purchased several bottles.
Pinot Noir Gem
Another out of the bottle find by Cam that was offered at a great price! An intense fruit Pinot Noir that allows it to be paired with heavier meals.
Best Pinot of the year by far!
Excellent find on Cam's behalf! This is the best Pinot Noir released in a year or more.....
Good nose, excellent fruit and nice long finish
Opened this up to share with company who are also CH fans. We love Pinot and this started out a bit slowly, but as some time went on the wine only got better. They were glad when I said said I had bought more. Good nose to start and the fruit really came thru as it should. Nice long finish - it only got better as the night progressed. Great value.
Not what I expected
Was only OK compared to other CH value Wines. Coming from Central Coast I was expecting a little more from this pinot.
Especially complex California Pinot Noir
It is amazing the flavors that have been coaxed out of these grapes. Of course dark red fruit, but well integrated oak and a similar licorice or rather anise note.
