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.
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.
Cameron Hughes has done us all a wonderful favor through his business plan. He has brought great wine to the masses and the quality of my life would suffer enormously if I could not continue to get his great stuff. He and is company really are a blessing. This wine, however, is terrible. It could be that I just do not have the right set of taste buds, but I think that the emperor has no clothes for this walk around town. "Petrol bomb" is what comes to mind for me. Even though two of my favorite things are lighter fluid and aftershave, I don't like them in my wine. But hey, I have bought many cases of wine from this guy and I hope to buy many more, just not of this stuff.
This was just ok for me. Not a lot of flavor except a bit of bitterness. I will finish the bottle because it's not awful, but I definitely would not recommend or reorder.
A crowd pleaser!
I can't keep this wine in stock. The perfect summer poolside wine. Even friends who don't like rose have multiple glasses. At $13 it's a steal!
A well balanced wine to enjoy at any time and with any food.
The summary describes my reaction. I have consumed plenty of it.
Say Yes to This Rose
Strawberry is evident in the first sip--and every sip thereafter! This Rose is just shy of being crisp and is wonderfully fruity without any sweetness. The first bottle was shared with friends, and the second bottle I kept for myself!
Nice Summer Rose
I am not a Rose drinker but my wife insisted I would like this and she was right, nice and dry and very enjoyable for summer drinking!
I love the Chehalem Mountain Pinots we've gotten from CH, so when this rose went on sale, I bought a case. The reviews were very positive so I thought I couldn't go wrong. Unfortunately, it's been a disappointment. My wife likes it better than I do, but there's an off-putting flavor to it compared to other dry roses we've tried. I thought maybe the first bottle might have been bad, but the second time wasn't any better.
Love this rose, which is perfect for the summer months. Nice flavor and pairs well with everything.
