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.
Not my favorite
I was a bit disappointed in this one-I guess I was expecting more. It was light and fresh but it seemed a bit flat and left a flat aftertaste.
Nice Middle Ground
Nice middle of the road refreshing rose - more on the dry side. One of those "most everyone will like" on the patio wines.
I am not really a Rose fan but this one was OK for me, my wife and daughter enjoyed it a lot.
Will buy again.
Put this in the regular refrigerator in order to serve it colder than the wine fridge. Once properly chilled, this was a pleasantly light, refreshing weekend afternoon wine.
The Arroyo Grande Valley AVA is pretty new to my explorations, and I did enjoy Lot 723. I found it pretty much in the middle as far as my favorite rosés. Not too sweet or fruit-forward and not bone dry. This is a good wine to introduce red and white wine drinkers to the joys of rosé. My guess is that most won't kick this one off the picnic blanket.
Typically Rose would be too sweet for me but I bought this based on the reviews of not being too sweet. I had a few friends over for an early afternoon appetizer and wine and we all loved this so much I ordered more. Perfect summer afternoon wine!
Took a chance...
CA Rose's usually disappoint but as usual, Cam found a winner. Wife loves it too, and that's important.
One of Cam's better Rose's
We've bought several roses from Cameron the last couple years, and while the others have been underwhelming, this one is probably my favorite. I still prefer roses from Provence, but Cam's are cheaper are suitable for Tuesday night drinking :) Not too sweet, dry enough and lacking strong aftertastes. Nice summer wine for the price.
Great rose wine
We really liked this wine. Not too sweet almost dry. A great summer rose wine.
