Cameron Spring Releases: Excitement>Sheepishness

This Cameron spring release brings our usual excitement combined with an extra dose of sheepishness—are the wines really this limited and are we really sending an email about them anyway?

As Cameron CEO/founder/winemaking guru John Paul said, the production of these is "stupidly small." In case quantities we're talking a couple handfuls of Dundee Hills Pinot noir and fingers on one hand of Ramato and Giuliano. We prefer not to hype them anymore than we already have in our notes below. Cameron loyalists will know what to do and will know to do it quickly.

$34.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($37.95 regular)

With ease, the best 2020 Willamette Valley Pinot we've tasted. Lovely and pure raspberry and cherry is joined by lavender and rose petal, with a Dundee Hills sweet earth note humming beneath. Tasted multiple times over 24 hours with the same impression.

Roughly 3/4 Abbey Ridge and 1/4 Clos Electrique. Extremely limited in supply.

$34.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($37.95 regular)

One of two Cameron spring releases with origins in northeastern Italy's Friuli Venezia Giulia region, ramato is Italian for copper colored and refers specifically to Pinot grigio (or in Oregon's case, gris) fermented with skin contact. Pinot gris skins have both color and flavor, making this more than your garden variety "rose." Suuuuuper limited.

$34.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($37.95 regular)

The other Cameron spring release inspired by Friulian wines, comprised of Friulano, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc, Muscat, Auxerrois, and even a couple buckets of Ribolla Gialla. A complex and rich white made more so by the tiny crop of 2021, this sashays from citrus summer stone fruits to mint leaf to salted almond, showing this intensity and pizazz. Craaaaaaazy limited.
