Concentrated and juicy
Drank this one a few years after release- and its showas an unusually concentrated and energetic dose of mouth watering raspberry and cola at this point. Not shy with the fruit and ripeness, but balanced by a round and lingering acidity. Delightful new world style of Pinot, fruit forward for sure, but still harmonious and yummy.
Closed nose and closed taste. I got nothing out of the nose and not much out of the taste. Drinking now but not a lot of fruit
Love it's intensity
Love it's cherry and strawberry nose and essence! Not suite, just deep!
Great Pinot, broaden your expectations though...these grapes had a mind of their own.
Nice, but ...
Have to agree with the high-alcohol complaints. This is a great Pinot Noir taste-wise, BUT there is a tad too much alcohol.
Has everything you want in a Pinot, dances on the tounge. I wish I could get a bunch more.
15.3% alcohol disqualifies this as table wine
Not that great
Not a lot of flavor, had an alcohol vinegar finish. Not what I expected from CH. Hate to say it but you could do just as well in the grocery store for the same price.
Was very pleased with this Pinot. Easy to drink, not very complex, but good for vegetarian or chicken dishes.
Made the dinner
This Pinot Noir was a welcomed compliment to the dinner. No one needed to be asked if they wanted a second glass. Really happy with my selection.
I really enjoyed this Pinot Noir. Only purchased 2 and wish I had more.
