From the moment I swirled the wine in the glass to the first sip, wonderful. This is a very enjoyable wine. Though I am no connoisseur, I have enjoyed many pinot noirs and this was outstanding. Thank you!
Yet Another Top Pinot
If you like pinot, this one will blow your socks off. The balance of fruit (tart cherry and berry) with the savory (spice, tobacco, herbaceous earthiness) is exceptional. Drank one-half bottle of this two nights ago with a great winter dish - roasted sausages with onions, fennel and grapes. Was a fantastic match. Drank the balance last night, and it was just as good or even better. Buy a few bottles of this so you can share it with friends.
I am a big Pinot fan and this was the best CH Pinot I have had. Bought 2 cases after the first bottle. Cam's description is spot on.
Really enjoyable bottle. Well balanced and fruity.
I do not hold myself out as an expert on Pinot Noir; this being said, I found this wine to be disappointedly thin for what I was expecting, especially considering it's promotion as a "blockbuster". Not what I am used to from Cameron Hughes.
delicious Pinot Noir
Enjoyment begins with the delightful aroma upon opening. Cherry but not sweet, lighter than some, but rich and flavorful. Good finish.
Well balanced, fruit forward
Really enjoyed this one. Balanced, fruity, traditional Pinot.
Great tart cherry flavor
Really nice. Very smooth. Very pronounced tart cherry note. Will definitely be holding onto a few of these to try in a few years.
Pinot is like sushi
Pinot is one of those wines for wine lovers like a ribeye is for steak lovers. Once you acquire a taste for it, you want to keep it coming. 696 is light and not tannic very close to Chianti. I paired it with chicken piccata and pasta great combo.
Excellent -- if you like Pinot
A very well balanced, well made, pinot noir. IMHO, an above average product from Chehalem, at a significantly below average price for wine of this quality. Bought a case for my wife (and me!) and we are both enjoying it. Cheers.
