Outstanding Pinot

A friend worked with Larry Stone, Master Sommelier. He worked with her to really develop an interest and appreciate for fabulous wine. It was Larry that helped her understand why she adores Pinots. This is her absolute favorite. I have one bottle left and I will only drink it with her. Here's to hoping CH gets more from this vineyard.

To Die For

Another wine I'd been saving and what a treat. Huge CA pinot that exemplifies Santa Rita Hills. There are few subtleties with this juice. It jumps out a whacks you, and in the best of ways. Everyone at the table went wild over 505. I wish more of this or something similar was around.

Still too young for me

Opened my first bottle of this wine tonight-one of my first wines tried from 2012. For me it is still too young as I usually drink my reds at 4+ years of age. After about 2+ hours it really blossomed and was a wonderful wine. I am always intrigued by how a wine develops over time not only after being opened, but over the years as well. I am looking forward to this wine in about another 2-6 years. The fruit and acid are there to give me great hope to try this until it is 10 years old.

Cameron Hughes Pinot Noirs

The lot 505 is great. The first one I acquired, the Russian River Pinot Noir, got me interested in the Pinot Noirs. In past years was not a wine drinker. While stationed in Europe in mid 1980s, I became interested in wine! My wife says if I'm going to drink any alcoholic beverages, stay with wine...it's doesn't put on weight like beer!
There you have it from a 70 year old retiree that has been around the block a few times!

Favorite CH Wine

I'm a big Pinot fan and this one is not only worth the premium but licks a lot of higher priced and notable Pinots. Great balance with enough depth and punch to make it a great drinking wine but also one that transforms with so many dishes. I'm stocked up!

Favorite Pinot

I look forward to each Lot of Pinot CH Wines distributes. This is by far my favorite. The notes a pure Pinot. Beautiful fruit, soft mouth feel. Just elegant. I have recommended to all my Pinot friends and each one was thrilled.

Great Pinot Noir Value

The description of the wine is right on. What a great Pinot Noir from this appellation and a great price!

Simple finish but full body

I tasted this wine at liquor boy in MN. Terry, our favorite rep said this one is stronger than 426, but I did not see that myself. It seemed a pleasant, smooth texture, warm body on the nose, and a little dry. The finish was simple for me, it was like a nice song that ends on a short chord.

I'm not a huge fan of Pinot noir, this one was right in line with the experience I anticipated. A good wine for CH, but not one of the best I've had.
