Firmly established as the most reputable Pinot region in California, the Russian River Valley AVA covers roughly a sixth of the total vineyard acreage in Sonoma County, and its wineries have gone on to receive countless awards and international notoriety. Anchored by rare sandy loam “Goldridge” soils formed by an ancient sandstone seabed, the RRV is also home to a cool coastal climate. The result? Perfect growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Lot 673 comes to us from the Laguna Ridge, right in the heart of it all. Produced from 20-year-old estate vines planted to Goldridge soils with a state-of-the-art underground drainage system, the wine is made tip to tail by a team with 60+ years of combined experience and a long tenure in the 90-points club. A beautiful expression of what this region is all about.
I just bought some new Pinot glasses from Riedel and what a difference they made with this wine, absolutely mouth watering.
Hot Pepper Spice!
I found this oddly too spicy for a wine like this. Good value, but not great.
Very solid daily drinker, but not as special as some of the other CH Pinot options.
Great Pinot, Great taste of cherry, would love to buy more you are sold out.
Love this Pinot
We loved this Pinot Noir! Although like bodied it drink like a 50.00 Pinot. Beautiful noise Would buy this again and again
A lovely wine
Loved this Pinot!
We loved this Pinot Noir! Great taste for a great price. More character than many more expensive pinot noirs. Disappointed that it's out of stock!
Enjoyed this Pinot . Was going to buy more but sold out. CH Wine just came out with 729 Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley.
Good all around!
Buy a couple bottles and save for a nice dinner party. Likely to improve with age. RRV usually delivers a nice product and while I wouldn’t rank this as the highest or best I’ve had, it’s defiantly one to add to your list. It’s an easy drink with good aroma.
I found this wine to be a perfect combination of sugar/tannin/acid/alcohol. Beautiful nose, smooth but nuanced on the pallet and a lingering finish. Easy to drink . Great value for the money
