    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cambria 2006 Julia's Pinot Noir offers fresh cherry, blueberry, strawberry and cranberry fruit flavors accented with cinnamon and vanilla oak spice characters. The mid-palate has a silky texture and balanced tannins that lead into a fruity and earthy finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the best Pinot Noir at this price on the market. Easily. It's picture-perfect cool climate, absolutely dry and silky, with complex flavors of cherries, Mandarin orange, cola, pomegranates, licorice and cinnamon spice, made even richer by smoky oak. Just lovely, and gets even better as it breathes in the glass.

    Light crimson hue. Inviting scents of wild cherry and raspberry with secondary nuances of thistle and white pepper. Juicy flavors of black cherry and raspberry. Velvety tannins and hints of vanilla and allspice in the cherry-driven close.

    Though not outstanding, after this wine gets a breath it delivers a very nice and pleasurable pinot taste that will make your taste buds thank you. Very good and enjoyable, and a good value for the experience.

    Lovely wine. Fresh red berry nose (strawberries quite notable) mirrored on the palate with a little pepper, cinnamon, and well-integrated wood. Medium to medium light body with adequate acid and balanced lightish tannins. Overall, a very well balanced and extremely elegant wine. Not fat or muscular, but instead graceful and subtle. A "feminine wine," that doesn't scream or screech, but sings softly and beautifully for anyone listening. Aussie Shiraz lovers might not quite get it. A steal for around $20. I want to buy a case and see how if it can develop even more for the next year or two. WEnthus just scored this a 93 as "the best PN at this price point. Easily." That could be correct.

    We first had this while on vacation in North Carolina. When we got home I searched all over town for it and couldn't find it. That's what brought me to wine.com. It is a wonderful, smooth blend of flavors with a great finish. As others have stated, make sure to let it breathe. A great wine at a great price.

    Opened at a tasting at my home and they all felt it was good. They asked for the name and the vintage. Light, not heavy. Left open for two hours before serving.

    You can't beat this wine for the money. A great wine to have around the house. Very nice finish.

    Despite a rather dull color, this wine is delicious. Not real heavy but a perfect red especially for enjoying before dinner, but bold enough to enjoy with dinner.

    I liked it for the value, but will definitely let it open up more next time.

    First of all as a courtesy to others please don't rate a wine that has corked! Even a '59 Lafite Rothschild Pauillac that has corked will taste bad. The 2006 Cambria Pinot Noir was a perfect pairing for our Thanksgiving meal and got rave reviews from everyone. It had a fine earthy nose and a well balanced body that held its own with all of the different foods including of course turkey as well as sweet potatoes, dressing, scalloped oysters and green beans. I also served an excellent gewurtztraminer but the Cambria Pinot was the preferred wine of choice.
