Wine Details

Ripe but pure, with deftly deployed oak that lifts and elevates but never overpowers. It soars out of the glass with an absolutely gorgeous mélange of wild strawberry, raspberry and black cherry pitched against a supporting cast of earthy, Burgundian-style componentry. The super pretty, super pure nose also has a real spicy, feral quality to it in the best way. Exquisitely balanced on the palate with lush fruit that comes in waves in a long, smooth finish. This is first class Pinot Noir all the way.

Cam Confidential

Russian River Pinot Noir from the much-heralded 2013 vintage, purchased in “shiner” (bottle of wine with no label) from one of the best Pinot Noir consulting winemakers on the North Coast (winemaker of the year for numerous publications over the last decade, and certainly a huge force in the success of California Pinot Noir). This wine normally retails anywhere from $32-$42/bottle depending on the cuvée, and you’ll be able to do your own detective work as the producer’s name is on the cork (though not the consulting winemaker). There were two bottlings available - I tasted each and this was the best one.

Pleasant fruity bouquet. Very smooth with mild tannins. Really liked this delicious Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. My favorite CHWine Pinot.

I'm not normally a fan of pinot, but this was amazing, especially for the sale price of $12.60. Cherry, vanilla, bourbon barrel? That may be totally off to those with a better palate than mine, but it's what I taste, and it is phenomenal. I'll be on the lookout for more such incredible values.

Sorry to say that I'm down to just a few bottles. Best after warming up a bit out of wine refrigerator as the wine gets better with each sip. Nice long finish. Pairs well with salmon in particular.

I'm never disappointed by what Cam offers in Pinot's, and this is no exception. Tasty, smooth with a nice finish. Though very good, not quite up to some of the other CH Pinots, but at this price a great deal.

Outstanding Russian River Pinot Noir. This wine should age gracefully as it has great structure and complexity. A smooth finish with nice cherry notes.

This pinot is a classic California style Pinot. It delivers on all of the expectations of a wine from the Russian River Valley. There are strong notes of cherry with a full bodied feel and medium to long finish. A must buy!
