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.

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!
