Wine Details

The epitome of pure California style RRV PN, this wine is a study in power and class. Boldly aromatic, with evolving notes of black cherry and blackberry overlaid with raspberry cola aromas and high-toned florals. Ripe and powerful nose, with an equally rich palate packed with deep cherry and complimentary oak notes. Velvety, complex, and oozing with luscious sap, this wine is notable for its teeth-staining quality while remaining soft on the palate. Definitely a big, classy Pinot Noir that combines rich, full bodied fruit with a soft, velvety texture and a long finish.

As I've mentioned before, my favorite opportunity buys are shiners - bottles of wine that have no label on them. Some folks just happen to have a little bit extra out of big vintages like '12/'13/'14, and I was more than happy to scoop these up. Lot 483 is a single vineyard designate wine, was aged in the finest French oak, and has already been in bottle for two years. It is usually only sold in the producing winery's tasting room for $50-$60, but is available here today for only $24!

I call this a second drinker. After I have had one or two glasses of either 505 or 482, I will drink 483. For me, it didn't have the depth of flavor that I look for in a Russian River Pinot. Still a good value, but not one of my favorites, which still is Lot 505.

Best Pinot I have ever had

I bought several of the most touted 2012 pinot noir wines and this is by far the best.

Your explanation and analysis is great.

Perhaps the most full bodied Pinot I can remember tasting. Great fruit extraction, great aromatics. Not for those who prefer a light-weight dainty Pinot. Still, the price is right up there with big cabs.

Stock up on this one. Huge versatility for a pinot. Full bodied and rich. We enjoy this with a variety of dishes including red meat, pasta, and roast chicken. It's a great pinot.

One of the best pinots I've tasted. Of the 480 series, 483 is by far the best. Rich flavor and great after taste. Goes well with just about anything.
