Wine Details

Pours a ruby core with a crimson rim…a bit reticent at first with hints of soft red fruit, but a few minutes of air rewards you with a blooming amalgam of cherry and raspberry fruit, haloed with cinnamon spice and earthy, truffle-y forest floor. A wonderfully pure wine with a classic Burgundian nose, followed a medium-full bodied texture on the palate. Not overly extracted or oaky, this is a textbook example of Oregon Pinot with wonderfully delineated fruit and excellent minerality in a lengthy finish that screams for food. It really starts to sing with about 15-20 minutes of air, so give it a decant – it’s a seductive beauty that’s worth the wait.

Cam Confidential

Located on the western side of the Willamette River valley, the volcanic Jory soils of the Dundee Hills AVA are deftly planted by a handful of wineries that produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and sparkling wines at the highest level.

Lot 586 comes to us from a pioneering, family-owned estate in the Dundee Hills that was instrumental in building the Oregon wine industry from its infancy – its name is a benchmark for the entire region, and no list of the best Willamette Valley wineries is complete without. Carefully tended vineyards are planted on the southern-facing slopes, with grapes hand harvested and sorted before going through small-lot fermentation and 16 months in French oak barrels. From a $40/bottle source bottle program that routinely picks up 90-92 from Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, and Parker.

…bought some of this when I did. I knew it would go fast. It represents much of what I like about the pinot grape. Still, I'm a fan of letting these guys breathe or in the least be decanted. Is it me? Am I am fan of grape juice? NO! 586 smoothes out and lets the fruit come forward and linger until that next bite of salmon goes down or on a good day a rare lamb chop. OK, OK, I can't do tannin. So this I love.

After a few hours in the decanter, you'll really like the nose, and enjoy the soft cherry and dry fruit flavors, as well as an earthy undertone. Great value for a Burgundian-style pinot.

Let it breathe and it will continue to impress. Very nice little Pinot that we have in the "during the week" rotation that pairs nicely with most meals.

pinots at this price generally don't have the depth and complexity, and even tho from Oregon, it it just OK

I didn't like it until it got some air and then I really liked it. It goes with just about anything, but I like it on it's own. It has a unique intensity. Not from CA, so it does have a different flavor than the Pinots you may be used to.

I'm accustomed to the CA Pinot, so I don't think I can give this a fair review. I liked it, but the taste is different, lighter, and not as complex as a good CA Pinot. But the price is right, and for the $ it delivers a nice bottle.

You can't go wrong with Pinot Noir's from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. And this one is half the price of what you'd normally pay there. It's nothing like the California Pinots. Give it a try.

This is the first wine that I have had that was not acceptable. It had little to no taste or aroma and would not call this a pinot from Oreland.
It lacks all of the characters that a pinot should have and would not order this again or recommend it.

Smooth taste, a lovely compliment to pasta with red sauce and vegetables.

Now I know. Sometimes when you hear that it is a "drinker" that means something you pour for people that have no appreciation for anything wine related. This is the wine that is something you would like to drink whenever you want a good glass. Good for those that will never appreciate a decent bottle, and for those that are a bit more on the snob side. Definitely something to stock up on for you and your "friends".
