Lot 395
2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Award Winner: 2014 SF Chronicle Wine Competition; Delicious raspberry, cherry, and spice with juicy texture. Archetypal California Pinot.
  • San Francisco Chronicle Medal Winner
Inviting aromas of fresh raspberry, cherry and cola spice swirl around a dark earth core of forest floor, black fruits, and wet stone. Beautifully aromatic and intense. On the palate, a juicy texture is supported by dark fruits and cherry spice along with well-integrated French oak. Terrific structure is perfectly balanced by broad sweeping tannins. No need to decant - just pop and pour!

Style: Medium, Smooth

Flavors: Cherry, Earth, Raspberry, Spice

Cam Confidential
The 2012 vintage afforded us tremendous opportunity to score awesome Pinot values all over the state of CA – a fantastic, picture-perfect vintage combined with huge quantities of amazing fruit. This particular Lot is sourced from a famed grower with simply too much fruit above their contracts. We got the grapes for a song and are passing this amazing value along to you. 5 months in 25% new French oak is all this wine needed, given the raucous, ripe fruit and soft tannins that characterized the vintage.
