Cambria Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard 2017

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesJulia's Vineyard was originally planted in the 1970s, and was named for Julia Jackson in 1988 after the Jackson family purchased the winery two years earlier. You feel the warmth of Santa Maria Valley here, both in terms of the darker fruit profile and the rich, glycerous texture. But it's nicely balanced by savoury notes of underbrush and flint, with well-integrated oak spice. Already drinking well now, thanks to its silky tannins, serve this with a slight chill to bring out more freshness. It's serious pinot that's a steal at this price.
