Wine Review: The Cambria Pinot Noir has done a good job of melding ripe berry fruit flavors with savory ones. On the nose, this wine opens with notes of raspberry, black cherries, earl grey tea, and tapenade. The palate continues the theme but has additional notes of strawberries, cola, leather, and black pepper. The finish is fresh, but the tannins are still a bit green. This Pinot would pair well with a Reuben on rye. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Bright red fruit dominates the nose; pomegranate, dried cranberries, and black cherry. Spice notes of cinnamon, sage and clove complement the balanced tannins that add structure and a long finish to the wine.
