2012 Cambria "Bench Break Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1264826 90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir Bench Break is a classic Cambria wine with exuberant fruit, deep color and exotic spice overtones. Lavender, menthol and cloves add complexity to the dark red and blue-toned fruit. The firm tannins could use another year or two to soften. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Better, with a deeper, richer color, the 2012 Pinot Noir Bench Break offers a straightforward, subtle bouquet of black fruits, cherry blossom, underbrush and pretty floral notes to go with a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated profile. Aged 10 months in 40% new French oak, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 3-5 years. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby-red. Pungent aromas of dried cherry, anise and musky herbs, with a subtle floral nuance building in the glass. Juicy and focused, offering smoky cherry-cola and licorice flavors and a hint of mocha. Dusty tannins shape the clinging finish, which shows lingering smoke and bitter cherry notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2014)
