Lot 504
2012 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

An amazing "Reserve" Pinot Noir value from the Santa Maria Valley.
$20
Lot 504 features dark fruit aromas intermingled with chocolate notes and a hint of earth. There’s definitely a voluptuous feel to this wine, and it coats the palate with a deep black cherry richness backed by sublime oak integration. Truly a succulent experience. This is a big Pinot, perfect for more formal occasions and also a superb candidate for additional cellaring.

Style: Medium, Fruity

Flavors: Cherry, Savory

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 "Reserve" Pinot Noir that has already been aging beautifully for over two years in bottle. Under 150 cases are available. Compare at $50-$60.
