Cambria Julia's Pinot Noir 2011
Santa Barbara County is a quiet sanctuary of golden hills and well-groomed vineyards located three hours north of the glitter and bustle of Los Angeles. This is the place we call home. For more than 20 years, we have produced estate grown Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah from our benchland vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA of Santa Barbara County. Welcome to Cambria.
External Reviews for Cambria Julia's Pinot Noir
Bright, fruit flavored with strawberry and cherry, it gives way to its seductive side with velvety layers of blueberry and blackberry and suttle hits of delicate vanilla and spicy cinnamon. Located in the cool climate of Santa Barbara.
Aromas and notes of bright cherry and strawberry nuances along with cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg spice. Well balanced with fine tannins and good structure.
Ruby-red. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of black raspberry, lavender and vanilla. Pliant and sweet in the mouth, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors that pick up a licorice nuance with air. Shows good energy and a refreshingly bitter quality on the finish, which is firmed by smooth, even tannins.
A pretty, elegant and fresh effort that has loads of charm, the 2011 Pinot Noir Julia’s Vineyard has plenty of sweet cherry, raspberry and spice to go with a medium-bodied, pure and supple feel on the palate. Juicy acidity emerges on the finish and the focus here is on beautiful Pinot Noir fruit. Enjoy it over the coming handful of years. Drink now–2016.
