Made with left over fruit from the Clos Electrique and the Abbey Ridge. Killer stuff! Beautiful red fruits and earthy aromas carry to the palate. Discrete tannins and ample acidity. Well balanced, well crafted and ready to have on its own or with a meal. Great Pinot isn’t cheap, but this comes in at a fair price for a wine that is ready now or will age well in the cellar.

Really opened for tomorrow. Poured into a wide-bottom decanter. This has 13.8% ABV, which seems quite high for a Cameron wine. On the nose: reminds me of the 16 reserve. Very ripe blackberry, soft plum, mushroomy Cameron funk, which is much softer than usual, soft cinnamon, clove and a touch of cola. On the palate: downright dense on the attack, and acidity seems softer than usual. Plum, blackberry, pomegranate molasses, an unusual alcoholic heat. Finishes dark with soft tannin and some bitterness.

Well, s*!t. That Charmes was spectacular, but this is next-level good. More umami, more spice, more funk, but never over-the-top.

Pretty much the gold standard in Pinot. Bought a half case of this from Vinopolis in Portland and wished I’d bought a full one. The Deep Roots Coalition back label reminds me of the way Cayuse vines have to grow deep roots. Somehow the best wines come from grapes that vines that have to struggle. Burgundy, eat your heart out!

Awesome. Virtually everything I love about Oregon pinot. Very easy but fruit forward and somewhat complex.

The wine of the night. Floral, fruity, earthy aroma, beautiful texture, good balance. Cameron has a solid spot in my top 5 Willamette Valley producers

Acid up the wazoo. Been open an hour, could use some more air.
