The Arroyo Grande Valley is a 16-mile long winding AVA located just a few miles off the Pacific Coast in San Luis Obispo County. Divided by a fog line that separates the cool Pinot and Chard-growing vineyards of its western side from the Zinfandel and Syrah plantings of its upper east, it's a region that rests within the broader Central Coast. Also like its Edna Valley neighbor, it's considered an underrated gem.
Sourced from a drop dead gorgeous winery on the valley's west side, Lot 723 is made entirely from estate-grown Pinot grapes, produced by a crack winemaking team with top pedigree and an endless list of 90+ scores and Gold Medals under their belt.
What an excellent Rose.
I was pleasantly surprised by the finish and what a beautiful color.
Hooray for this Rose
Not too sweet. Not too dry. Great for a late afternoon happy hour paired with cheeses.
Very Good to Excellent
Pleasant fruit nose. A long finish of fruit (pear and citrus) with good structure. Very crisp. Bottom line. I ordered 6 more bottles. Drinks good with and without food.
I don't normally like Rose's but this one is so drinkable, light, and flavorable. I only bought one of these in my last case and that was a mistake, I will be buying more.
Good, but not my favorite Rose'
Provencal roses are usually my favorite, but pinot noir is usually next in line. This one was OK-to-good, but not my favorite. Dry, not quite acid as I had hoped and decent fruit, but short finish. Good value, especially at this price.
Least favorite CH Rosè
This was very flat and sharp with no real flavor profile. My husband and I did not enjoy this as it did not have any complexity or depth. Thankfully we only bought one bottle.
I love a good rose, this one is just what I was looking for, nice & dry but easy to drink.
Easy to Like
Nice dry, fruit forward rose. Good value.
Great value for this Rosé
This one is not as sweet at the Arroyo but hits the spot on a warm day!
We were disappointed with this wine. I think it is a good - well crafted wine, decent finish, low on acidity. But it had no character - nothing to distinguish itself. We hoped it might develop as it took on air, but it was as bland after an hour as it was when we opened it haven’t had many (if any) Cam Hughes wines that we haven’t thoroughly enjoyed. This one may be the first. Oh well - can’t win them all!
