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.
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!
Right about as expected for this price point.
Easy to get comfortable with
I liked this wine a lot. How about the color? More like French than Californian. I smell peaches and spices on the nose. The palate is dry with a really nice acid/tannin structure to it, This allows the underlying fruit to emerge. I think that several of the reviewers who thought this was sweet were tasting the fruit, not sugar. The finish is long, especially for a Rose. I agree that this Rose is more mellow than other Roses I've had with more zing, but overall, very refreshing and great for the warmer days ahead.
Decent but not spectacular
I wanted to love this Rose since I’m picky about roses but tend to love ones from Pinot Noir grapes but sadly this was just okay. A fine Rose but lacked excitement or punch.
Not my favorite Rose
I have had many bottles of Rose from CH but this is not a favorite. Just did not like the taste at all. It is pretty flat with no real substance.
This isn’t my favorite CH rose. It’s not bad but I don’t find it to be as crisp and refreshing as the Haut Alps Rose.
Nice uncomplicated wine for a wide variety of foods, or just for sipping.
A light citrus nose followed by a medium length finish with a distinct mineral tones mixed with fruit. A very good everyday summer wine. We already purchased more.
Nice Summer Wine
We found this to be an uncomplicated, enjoyable porch wine. It has a light fruity tartness that really keeps your interest for a while. Well worth the price point (probably more like 3.5 stars).
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.
