Established 20 years ago, Cambria has emerged as one of the top producers of Pinot Noir from southern California. The Cambria wines are invariably delicious, true to the varietal and moderately priced. The Julia vineyard is the oldest site owned by Cambria. Bouquet of dark cherries and freshly picked strawberries. The palate displays lively, engaging Pinot berry fruit accented by cinnamon and vanilla. A perfect Thanksgiving red!

Cambria's Pinot Noir offerings are well-made, with the tell-tale tomato/herbaceousness that seems to be a characteristic of Santa Barbara. The 1996 Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard is similar in style to the 1995, with less herbaceousness, as well as less flavor intensity. Soft and round, it will provide competent drinking over the next several years.

Intense and concentrated, with a range of flavors that stretches from earth to spice, cranberry and cherry. Turns complex on the aftertaste.

The nose is brimming with luscious cherry and strawberry flavors. This medium-bodied wine has notes of cinnamon spice, rich earth, and a round midpalate.

Supple, showing tea, cherry and wild berry flavors with toasty oak nuances that linger on the lightly tannic finish. Drink now through 2003.

I'll keep my tasting notes on Cambria's Pinot Noirs short, since the only wine produced in acceptable commercial quantities is the Bench Break. The rest are experimental, small lots, all of them solidly made wines emphasizing the red currants, strawberry, and sweet and sour cherry notes as well as the minerality of Pinot Noir. I didn't see as much difference in the clonal choices as one might expect, although the alcohol percentages ranged widely.

Our 2005 Julia's Pinot Noir offers dark ripe Bing cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavors that open into an underlying earthiness. A round mid-palate leads to vanilla and cinnamon spice on the silky finish
