Wine Details

Beautiful, sweet florals are backed by copious cherry and boysenberry with hints of cola, cinnamon and vanilla from a generous new oak regimen. Deep and rich across the palate, the wine has a tremendous yet beautifully balanced fruit impact, with hints of earth in the mid-palate. Excellent length on the finish, with a persistent core of fruit that lingers for minutes, not seconds.

Cam Confidential

This Russian River Pinot is a cuvée of six different vineyards, each of which fetches between $60 and $80 per bottle. The producer simply had a little bit more than they felt they needed, and we were the lucky recipients.

The cherry note is the primary one that hits you right away, and the wine has an excellent fade to a long finish. It's a fruity wine, which is not usually to my taste, but I really liked this bottle. I tried this one after Lot 395, and it is definitely an improvement. I enjoyed this wine greatly.

Waiting a couple of weeks after delivery to try. Still too early - closed and tight even on day 2. Will give this another couple of months before trying again. Hopefully it'll be over bottle shock on next try.
