Action-Required Pinots: Cameron and Beaux Freres Last Chances
Happy Friday Pinot fans! Just when you thought you could relax into the weekend...two "action required" last-chance Pinot offers. Firstly, we're excited to have a surprise second batch of Cameron Dundee Hills Pinot. If you missed out on the first round, don't miss this (much smaller) second round.
And while we're on last chances, below Cameron you'll find our last 2 cases of Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot noir 2018. Yup, the one that was #9 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 and is an all-round masterpiece. So before you kick up your feet, it's time to buy some Pinot!
$29.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($32.95 regular)
From old vines in Abbey Ridge (~85%) and Clos Electrique (~15%) Vineyards, Cameron's two crown jewel vineyards, the nose is all Abbey Ridge and that's a really good thing: of all the reasons we love Abbey Ridge, #1 is its wonderful aromatic signature of dark red fruit perfume, lavender and rose. Dark raspberry and black cherry carry through to the Clos Electrique part of it: right before the finish, there's a little dance of subtly smoky mineral action. All this great complexity but it's the silky frame that'll keep you mesmerized sip after sip.

#9 in Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2020, 95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "A wine of presence and expression, impeccably structured yet elegantly layered, with evocative raspberry, rose petal and brown baking spice notes that pick up richness and tension toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2029."
Us: A beautiful wine and a clear standout among the myriad 2018s we've tasted. It moves so effortlessly, floating without gravity from one billowy Pinot cloud to another. Especially succulent on day two. We highly recommend it.
