J. Bucher, Pinot Noir Rose – 2016

  • Basic info: J. Bucher “Rose of Pinot Noir” Russian River Valley, CA – 2016
  • Type: Rose/Pink
  • Price estimate: $25
  • Look: Electric dark pink, almost a light red in color. Vibrant.
  • Smell: This was weird, but I swear it smelled like herbed butter.
  • Taste: Pine, strawberry, sour apple and watermelon. Finish was fine, but not anything memorable.
  • Conclusions: Bob liked this a lot more than I did. I thought it was okay – pretty good, but not great. The first few sips were odd, and I think some of that had to do with the smell of the wine, but it was okay. It isn’t one I’m going to seek out again, but it was nice.
  • Other notes: This was one of the six wines we got from Underground Wine Events, which focuses on small producers. The Longboard was so good, I had really high hopes for this one, but it just wasn’t fantastic for me.
  • From the bottle: “World-class wines start in the vineyard. For over 50 years, our family has farmed in the Middle Reach of the Russian River Valley. Our passion and dedication for producing the finest agricultural products ensures exceptional fruit from out vineyard. We look forward to sharing our wines and our Journey with you.” 13.1% alcohol by volume.
