Lot 647 comes from a producer that has long been purposefully crafting biodynamic rosé from 100% Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley. Assembled from 47.5% whole cluster, 47.5% destemmed, and 5% saignée, the first two components bring the pretty fruit and lovely minerality while the latter adds a touch of richness and depth. This is rosé as it should be – conscientiously produced for maximum complexity and delicate nuance, while still delivering mouthwatering refreshment. Elegant, fresh, and keeping in the French tradition, this is about as close as you’ll get to Provençal-style rosé produced here in the US.
No, just no
Hold the presses. This just wasn't up to Cameron Hughes' standard. We have a saying in our house "Cameron Hughes never disappoints". Except this time. The wine has no noticeable bouquet other than alcohol. It just tasted vaguely sour but became more palatable as it warmed up (not my favorite thing to do with rose). On it's own, no thanks. Paired with food, it was vaguely ok. This is NOT what a good rose tastes like.
Rich full flavors!!
Excellent wine with chicken or fish - great full flavors!!
Fruity, but not too sweet. We quite enjoyed this wine!
Oregon comes through
Loved it. Strawberry nose immediately with floral background. I can pick up the blood orange that Cam mentions in the description. The dryness is a welcomed friend. Well done. Good find.
The price point is what crushes it here. The rose itself is solid, but the price is so low how can you not buy? I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't too sweet either, which is great because I'm not a fan of sweet rose.
Great for Every Day
Great Rose for an every day wine!
Wonderful dry Rose
Great wine for those warmer evenings!
Nice dry rose
Strawberry, but not like candy, no sweetness actually. Simply crisp, on the drier side, and easy to drink, our kind of rose when we want a break from our usual reds.
My wife likes it!
While I have found some of the reviews for this wine entertaining, and I certainly support other people's opinions...I don't think this wine is bad. While I am usually a red wine drinker, I do enjoy a nice Rose from time to time. I think the problem with this wine is it is on the lighter side. It is dry...but is lacking a little in the flavor. I will probably look for another Rose...but I think this one is worth the price.
