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.
Nice and light
Good pinot, great for sharing with our friends that don’t love the big bold reds.
A good Pinot for the price
A good Pinot for the price for sure. It was very light but then they usually are. It wasn't as good as 696 but drinkable all the same.
My least favorite Pinot from CH. Still an ok everyday Pinot though.
While I love AV Pinots, this RRV is a great change of pace for my husband and I.
Unfortunately this pinot was not that pleasing. I found it lacking structure. With little balance, the flat cherry cola syrup and smokey oak flavors were all over the place.
Nice lighter pinot
This was part of a club shipment. I was glad to give it a try but it is a little light for me as I liked 697 much better. Still a very drinkable and enjoyable pinot.
Nice summer pinot
This is certainly not a deep complex pinot, but at the price point you cant go wrong. Perfect pinot for 3pm glass of wine on the dock (dont judge)...
Perfect Everyday Wine
Perfect everyday wine. Looking at other reviews, my husband and I are guessing a bunch of Cab drinkers bought the wrong wine
I usually like Pinot's, but this had a bad after-taste
A good everyday pinot
I generally prefer a little more muscular pinot than this, but still a good value.
