Cambria Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard 2018

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesJulia's Vineyard will soon be 50 years old. It was named after Julia Jackson, daughter of Jesse Jackson and Barbara Banke, in 1988, two years after the Jackson family purchased the Cambria Estate Winery. You can feel the inherent warmth of Santa Maria Valley here, in terms of its darker fruit profile, brown spices, and rich, glycerous-like textures. It’s not over the top but rather nicely balanced by savoury notes of underbrush, flint and perfectly integrated oak. It’s always charming shortly after bottling, given its silky smooth tannins. I suggest a light chill to set the fruit off here.Tasted: 11 June 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 38.99 BCLS AB 39.99 select private retailers SK 39.99 special order MB 39.99 special order ON 34.95 Jun 12th Vintages - consignment Summit Fine Wines QC 34.00 SAQ Producer: Cambria Estate Vineyard & WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
