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.
Really enjoy this wine... one of our daily drinkers.
External Reviews for Echelon Pinot Noir Central Coast
Notes of blueberry, cherry, and maple syrup. Body was light, spicy, definite bing cherry.
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.
Look for some dried cherry, spice and wild berry flavors. Much more than a run-of-the-mill pinot.For this price, there is everything you might want in this solid offering.
