It's a keeper!
Really like this Pinot. Like Goldilocks; just right.
A Little Light
A little on the light side. I'm often a cab person and my wife is almost always a white wine person, but we both enjoyed this one. We ordered more. A good value.
Great with pasta
This is great right out of the bottle. I had it with Sunday dinner and it was lovely. Great for the price as well. I will definitely order more.
Not as robust as the California Pinot
I prefer a more robust Pinot like Merry Edwards, Papaprieto Perry, etc. I plan on letting this one sit in the bottle for awhile.
a tad disappointing
As a new and very enthusiastic member of this wine club, I was surprised at the watery thin look of this Pinot. The bland bouquet confirmed my concerns. But all was saved by the other half of the case which had a simply wonderful Grüner Veltliner white which was unknown to us, so all is forgiven!
We are Cabernet drinker but we thought we would try the Pinot and what great favors you can taste cinnamon and cherry. Very nice Pinot, would buy it again
Decent viscosity. Lot 729 has a darker pale ruby. Nose of cherry, cinnamon, cloves and dried leaves. taste has plenty of acidity with minimal tannins. Almost a medium finish. For $16 this is a decent value. I like red wines and I like salmon so I am looking forward to pairing Lot 729 with a grilled Sockeye (yum!)
Aroma is very soft....hints of strawberry, light spices, some woodiness. The flavor is more spice than fruit, and the fruit seems more raspberry than strawberry now. The balance is pretty even, but I found it a little tight right out of the bottle. Better as it opens up. I prefer more fruit forward pinots, but given the price, it's hard to be upset given how even it is.
Russian River, can't go wrong. Killer price too. Just bought a full case after sampling a few from our previous order
We love wines from the Russian River Valley region and this did not disappointed . It paired perfect with our nice Italian dinner. It was enjoyed by all
