2012 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

An amazing Pinot Noir value from the Santa Maria Valley.
$15
Rises from the glass with ripe strawberry notes, framed by that classic California Pinot aroma of cola, spice, and a kiss of smokiness. On the palate this is a seamless, balanced wine that exhibits beautiful fruit with good acidity. An intricately rendered, pretty Pinot that showcases California richness without being over the top – just lovely wine.

Style: Medium, Fruity

Flavors: Raspberry, Strawberry

Cam Confidential
The Santa Maria Valley is a Pinot Noir mecca within the broader cool-climate Central Coast region. The winemaker behind today’s releases is one of the region’s pioneers, and simply put, has too much wine piling up in his caves. I was able to scoop up this gorgeous Pinot Noir that has already been aging beautifully for over two years in bottle. Compare at $30-$40.
