Best of Class, 2015 SF Chronicle Wine Competition; Gold Medal, 2015 San Diego International Wine Competition; Gold Medal, Best of Class - CA State Fair; Outstanding Pinot Noir value from Monterey County.
Aromas of cherries and raspberry spice initially leap from the bottle. On the palate, this is clearly New World Pinot, through and through: Bold flavors of cherries and wild strawberry backed by savory spice, a kiss of coffee, and a long, lingering finish. This is a big Pinot with a backbone that will continue to please sip after sip.
Style: Medium, Fruity
Flavors: Cherry, Raspberry, Spice
After spending over a decade sourcing wine throughout California, I am confident the best Pinot values are found in Monterey County. Here, the temperate coastal conditions of Monterey Bay establish a perfect setting for growing Pinot Noir; the chilled marine air sweeps through the Salinas Valley, providing the vines with foggy mornings and cool afternoon winds. The result? Extra long hang times that produce wines with vibrant, focused flavors and beautiful extraction. CAM Collection Pinot Noir is sourced from a top producer in the region whose Pinot releases start at $25/bottle, and is a testament to our continued efforts to deliver the best product for the best price, period.
