Lot 503
2012 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

An amazing Pinot Noir value from the Santa Maria Valley.
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.
