New Year's Eve 2013/2014 Pinot Noir tasting
by Meyer11359847
This was the top wine of the six Chad Pinot Noirs tasted. It was almost full-bodied with cherry, raspberry, and smoke flavors. It will be great to see how the rest of the case develops.
Carneros Poster Child
by Koehler13929077
Wow. This is about as good as Carneros gets. I couldn't believe the depth of flavors and fruit in this wine. Extremely well made. Pure silk on the palate. Primary flaw is a lack of tannic structure that is hard to overlook. Obviously crafted from a great growing season.

This Bottle had even more body and comlpexity which I attribute to the wines having a bit more resting time after shipping. The wine is drinking like a 30+ wine
Nice wine at a great price point

Lots of fruit and very good balance. A super pinot

I loved this one. What a great value!

Just a bit thinner than the last bottle. Now medium to full body. Still very rich with good complexity. The rest of the case may never see its full development.

Dk red for a Pinot. Big cherry and fruit aroma. Medium body and smooth. Not complex but mouthfilling. An enjoyable wine. A good value.
A Stone of Other Chad Greatness
by Pizarro14005221
Not quite as good as the other Chad PN offerings. Bigger strawberry notes and some rhubard with underbrush, but not as interesting or complex as anticipated.

Perfect. One of the few Pinots I've recently tasted that actually tasted like Pinot, was affordable, and also not an overripe mess. Drank by itself at just over cellar temp, and it was pure silk.

Pinot Noir

Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape. The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
