2010 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

The 2010 vintage release of a stunning Pinot Noir vertical.

Gorgeously uplifted nose of spicy clove, nutmeg and black cherry backed by wood resin and savory leather aromas. On the palate, rich raspberry, black cherry, and uplifted oak. Just hitting its stride. You’ll notice plenty of sediment clinging to the sides of the bottle – perfectly natural.

Style: Medium, Smooth

Flavors: Cherry, Oak, Raspberry

Cam Confidential

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a 2010-2013 vertical of pedigreed, gorgeous, single vineyard designate Pinot Noir from what is universally lauded as one of the best places to grow Pinot in the United States - the Santa Rita Hills. The vineyard is specifically mentioned and highly lauded by Antonio Galloni in his 2014 report on the region. However, instead of the going rate of $50+/bottle, this amazing collection can be had for just $19/bottle. Each vintage features the same vineyard, is comprised of a 115, 667, and 777 Dijon clone blend (more about Pinot Noir clones here), is made from the same barrel regimen, and bottled unfined and unfiltered – in short, a perfectly consistent snapshot of the vintage.
