Wine Details

A beautifully balanced, complex Pinot Noir that will have broad appeal, providing ample punch but also carefully delineated flavors. Pale ruby in the glass, this Pinot starts with rose petal and earthy black cherry on the nose, opening up to reveal the warmer plum and brown baking spice notes with hints of pepper. Ample yet very refined on the palate, with perfect balance and emerging complexity that will definitely improve in the short term as this opens up in the bottle over the next month or two before settling in for longer term aging. Rich and concentrated on the palate with pretty yet ripe plum mingling peppery spice notes, this wine has plush texture and balance in a long, smooth, harmonious finish.

Cam Confidential

Lot 565 hails from just north of the CA/OR border in the Rogue River Valley. It's smack-dab in between San Francisco and Portland and, as with all good coastal regions good for growing Pinot Noir, has a mountain range between it and the ocean but with an accessible airway to let the cool ocean fogs roll in at night and provide nature's air-conditioning during the day. In this case, the Rogue River drainage at the western edge of the Rogue River appellation (known as the Illinois Valley) provides not just cool air ingress, but the well-drained soil structures necessary for lovely Pinot Noir.

Rogue River Valley is a rising star in the wine industry; compare at $30-$40 under the original label.

Drats, I was logging in to order some more of this Pinot only to find it sold out. It's just so smooth. I love swirling and sniffing it as much as sipping. Great find!

Pinot is a difficult grape to grow. Too often the result is a thin wine.
Not this one! Lot 565 is a wonderfully complex wine with a plush mouth feel. I wish I had purchased more of this excellent Pinot.

An easy-drinking pinot, a little on the light side, but nice nevertheless. Preferred Willamette Valley though.

People have been telling me to drink more Oregon Pinot. This is a good reason why. Cam, more like this, please.

You can't beat the price on this very drinkable pinot.

This wine is a great Pinot - more bright & juicy than others of this varietal I've tried, with a nice soft balanced jammy core to it. Highly recommended purchase!

Excellent value. Smooth and balanced flavors. Definitely recommend and will buy again!

A surprise in this Pinot Noir as my preference in red wines is generally not Pinot Noir but this Pinot Noir has a flavor profile that I perceive to be higher in tannins and lower in fruit than many Pinot Noir wines on the market.

One can't go wrong with this Pinot Noir from Rogue River Valley. It is perfectly balanced and I prefer it over the Oregon Pinot Noir Lot 539. I have 6 bottles of this and I will end up ordering more. Great medium bodied wine for the Holidays! Did I say it was awesomely priced with the add-in discounts?! Thanks CH Wine.
