Cambria Benchbreak Pinot Noir 2014

SKU cambriabenchbrkpinot


The Pinot Noir is deep, dark purple in color with abundant red fruit and dark berry aromas and flavors. The ever-present underlying earthy character compliments its solid tannin structure and long fruity finish. Food Pairings: Hearty wild mushrooms are layered between a rich béchamel sauce, three cheeses and pasta to create a swoon-worthy lasagna that is an excellent match for the Benchbreak Pinot Noir.

Wine EnthusiastLight black raspberry and purple-flower aromas show on the somewhat shy nose of this bottling from the Jackson Family's longtime Santa Maria Valley winery. Well-woven flavors of black raspberry, dark cranberry, thyme and bay leaf appear on the sip, which is light and easy albeit not very complex.
