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.
Lot 673: Pinot Noir
We enjoyed this bottle of pinot noir with friends who are big fans of pinot noir wine. I agree with some of the others reviewing this lot that this was not one of the best of the pinot noir lots we have enjoyed, but feel it was a solid bottle of wine.
Opened this bottle last night, the cork popped like champagne. Should have been my first sign. Tried a sip, was fizzy like a seltzer. Tasted like smoky vinegar And then it went down the drain. First bottle of CH I've been disappointed in.
This wine was a disappointment. I always Love CH red wines. Perhaps this was just a bad bottle. It had an acidic character that almost felt like effervescence. This over powered the flavor of the wine. Definitely not a silky Pinot Noir.
not a favorite
This was not our favorite wine to date. We reordered to retry, but really enjoyed other Pinots more than this one.
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
