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 extra in their cellars, and I’m more than happy to scoop them up when available!
Lot 582 is a single vineyard designate wine from a boutique winery in the heart of the Russian River Valley. This is a classically styled Pinot Noir on the richer side of the Pinot spectrum - 2013 was a fairly substantial vintage for power and finesse, and both are on display here. With three years bottle aging already done for you, the only cellaring needed is a week to let the wine recover from its journey and you're good to go! Usually only sold in the producing winery's tasting room for $60, available here for only $24! Only 100 cases available!
Full Body Pinot Noir
In the last few years I have bought many cases of CHW pinot noir. The best in my opinion was Lot 531 from Willamette Valley. Lots 581 and 582 are a little below that wine but both are full body pinot noirs that are at a good price point.
One of my favorites. Deep and balanced, and seems to get better the more it ages. Russian River Valley pinots are generally what I go for, and this one is perfect.
One of the best!
Balanced, nice depth and medium body. One of the best RRV Pinots you have every sold.
Tried this with the 581 back to back. The 582 is worth more than the $1/bottle difference.
Drinking the 581 as weekday, fine value. Saving the 582, much more complex and shows greater promise.
The shipment arrived and I had to immediately open a bottle. The CH description is on point. Fantastic RR Pinot!
