Excellent Pinot. A great bottle. Let it breath for an hour or so and you have a super pinot noir.
Great body, color, and unmistakable pinot noir fruit, reminiscent of higher end Garry Farrell style pinots. I wish the alcohol content was a bit lower than 14.9 %.
Very very good
If I had just sampled this wine without having previously finished a bottle of lot 481 it would have been 5 stars. This wine will not disappoint. Onwards to lot 483.
Best of the 480-483 Lots
This was my favorite of the 4 Pinots featured in June. Nice classic Pinot flavors. I didn't give it 5 stars because it tasted just not quite as big as I would have liked it to have been. It is still a great value and when I run out of the 505, this will be my go to Pinot.
Decant it for an hour; swirl it thoroughly; enjoy. It was the perfect match for seared rare tuna steak au poivre last night. Truly noteworthy Pinot--and not the biggest of the "quartet." Bien fait.
Delicious....with a little air.
Had the 482 last night with lamb chops and it paired up very well. It was good from the go with an excellent nose and full fruit. It was even better after the bottle had been open for about 1/2 hour. This should last a while as well. I'll see how my other bottle fares in another 6 months. Best Cameron Hughes Pinot I've yet had..
Good with a little air
Decanted for one hour and was very fruity, I have to agree with the other person the 483 is better.
I found this to be a great bottle. Let it breath for an hour or so and you have a super pinot noir.
To start, I feel 483 is a better Pinot and the $2 price difference is worth it. Starts off a bit acidic and then smooths out as it finishes. You should be happy here but grab the 483 if you can.
