I would give this a 5 but I am sure that there are probably others better, however I love this Pinot. Fantastic on the nose, delicate, supple. Stone fruit with a touch of cinnamon but not 'fruity'... love it...currently my favorite, but I always say that when I find a new wine that I love :))

This was a good pinot, but non-descript. Cheaper than most Pinots these days, so for the money it seems like a good buy. We had it with seafood and paired quite well with a spiciness of our meal.

Pretty much what Winehorn said... I think it's very hard to find even a "non-descript" pinot for nine bucks, so I gave it an extra 1/4 glass for that. ;-)

I agree with the commentary. This was a nice Pinot at any price point. The fact that it was under 10 bucks adds to the mix. Definitely something you might pick up on the way to a party.

Some old-world earthiness, but lacking in both old-world complexity and new-world quaffability.

Light, plummy with hint of strawberries and slightly bitter edge. It says black cherry on the bottle but doesn't taste cherry to me. Not bad, easy to drink but wouldn't go out of my way to buy it.

Notes of blueberry, cherry, and maple syrup. Body was light, spicy, definite bing cherry.

Juicy black cherry flavor balanced by a lean black-tea finish calls out for a smoky pasta alla carbonara.

The Chalone Wine Group created their Echelon brand in 1997 to offer a range of inexpensive wines to complement Chalonersquo;s single-vineyard bottlings. This Pinot Noir certainly tastes much better than its price would have you believe. With fruit coming mainly from growers in the cool-climate Santa Lucia Highlands above Californiarsquo;s Salinas Valley, the wine is packed with sweet strawberry and cherry flavors, layers of wood, and soft tannins.
