Wine Details

Rises from the glass with ripe strawberry notes, framed by that classic California Pinot aroma of cola, spice, and a kiss of smokiness. On the palate this is a seamless, balanced wine that exhibits beautiful fruit with good acidity. An intricately rendered, pretty Pinot that showcases California richness without being over the top – just lovely wine.

Cam Confidential

The Santa Maria Valley is a Pinot Noir mecca within the broader cool-climate Central Coast region. The winemaker behind today’s releases is one of the region’s pioneers, and simply put, has too much wine piling up in his caves. I was able to scoop up this gorgeous Pinot Noir that has already been aging beautifully for over two years in bottle. Compare at $30-$40.

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 cherry and strawberry nose and essence! Not suite, just deep!
Great Pinot, broaden your expectations though...these grapes had a mind of their own.

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 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.

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.
