Dark purple in color, Clone 23 Pinot Noir draws you in with its inviting aromas and flavors of blueberries, blackberries, spicy oak and mocha. Firm, yet balanced tannins offer the heft needed to carry the dark berry fruit flavors through to the finish, with ending notes of vanilla and sweet oak. Match this with eggplant parmesan (we won’t judge you if it’s a frozen entrée!) for a perfect supper.
One of Santa Maria Valley and Santa Barbara County’s most iconic, storied wineries, Cambria Estate Winery was founded in 1986 by wine icon Jess Jackson and his wife Barbara Banke. Today, the winery is led by their daughters Julia and Katie Jackson. Winemaker Jill Russell produces exceptional Pinot Noirs, and Chardonnays that are the truest expression of Cambria’s single-vineyard sourcing from its eponymous Julia’s Vineyard and Katherine’s Vineyard, alongside Syrah and Viognier crafted from Tepusquet Vineyard. Every wine bearing the Cambria name is 100-percent sustainably grown and produced on the estate.
