    Winemaker Notes

    "This Julia's Pinot Noir has a sweet black cherry and strawberry nose with hints of leather and spice. Velvety texture coats the palate and the finish lingers with notes of cherry and cinnamon spice."
    - Fred Holloway, Winemaker

    Julia's is hand-harvested from a 235-acre Pinot Noir vineyard in the coolest section of the, family-owned Cambria estate. As expected from the consistency of Cambria's fruit, this vintage speaks boldly of Santa Maria Valley's ideal climate and vineyard conditions for growing Pinot Noir. Formed from alluvial deposits of the Sisquoc River, Cambria's soil is gravelly and exceptionally well draining—restricting vine vigor to promote the growth of Pinot Noir with concentrated and intense flavors. The maritime influences that funnel in from the Pacific Ocean, cloak the Santa Maria Valley in mild temperatures, extending the vineyard's growing season to provide ample time to balance the fruit's acid profile and develop optimal varietal character.

    In the vineyard, development of mature flavors lays the foundation for flavor and quality and sets the stage for winemaking. This year, Mother Nature provided us with excellent conditions for the development of distinct, rich Pinot Noir. The vineyard management team was innately aware of the quality throughout the season and carefully managed the growth of this superb crop through meticulous management techniques. Leaf thinning allowed more sunlight on the clusters for full, even ripening. Irrigation was minimized to restrict vine vigor and focus the vine's energy on the development of concentrated flavors. Any underdeveloped fruit was taken off the vines at verasion to promote the growth of densely flavored clusters. The resulting Pinot Noir crop was superb quality.

    Individual lots of Pinot Noir were hand-harvested into small, open-top fermenting bins. A cold pre-soak and frequent punch-downs maximized the extraction of flavor and color from the skins. After fermentation, the Pinot Noir was racked into medium-plus toasted French oak, for ten months, to balance the velvety tannins and round out the mid-palate.

    Cambria
    Cambria is a private, family-owned estate winery that has carved out a reputation for producing lush, tropical Chardonnay, velvety-textured Pinot noir and rich, spicy Syrah since its inception in 1987. Cambria's proximity to the ocean and east-west orientation gives this 1,400-acre property the diversity it needs to grow Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah under perfectly suited conditions. As an estate property, Cambria's Vineyard Manager and Winemaker work in tandem to perfect the winegrowing process. Together, they select only the finest grapes from the estate to bear the Cambria name. Every grape is hand-harvested and crafted into wine with the utmost care and respect foe the varietal.

    In recent years, Cambria has concentrated its vineyard and winemaking resources into amplifying different aspects of the Cambria estate. This effort launched an in-depth exploration of the vineyard and varieties on this cool-climate property. The result has elevated the quality of Cambria's core wines, created new site-focused and distinct winemaking styles, and dramatically highlighted the bold flavors of each variety. Today, the flagship wines, making up 90% of the production, include Katherine's Chardonnay, Julia's Pinot Noir and Tepusquet Syrah. Each wine represents the broad definition of flavor, for that variety, on the estate.

    An historic zone responsible for some of Spain’s freshest white wines, Rueda is home to the indigenous grape varieties of Verdejo and Viura, though most of its whites are a majority, if not entirely, made of Verdejo. The region has also enjoyed some amazing success with the international variety, Sauvignon blanc.

    Rueda’s Verdejo vineyards flourished as far back as the Middle Ages. But the region wasn’t spared from the phylloxera epidemic of the late 1800s, which wiped out a great majority its vines. The 20th century saw a slow catch for replanting of Verdejo until the 1970s when the famous Rioja winery, Bodegas Marqués de Riscal recognized the region’s lost potential. It needed a fresh white to market alongside its Rioja red wines and was able to escalate Verdejo’s popularity once again with this goal in mind.

    Today Verdejo vines have adapted to and flourish in the stark landscape of Rueda’s high elevation flatlands and even some ancient vines, living in sandy soils where phylloxera could not survive, still produce exceptionally complex and mineral-driven Verdejo-based whites.

    Light-bodied but captivating with flavors of citrus blossom, melon, white peach and fennel, Verdejo is native to Rueda, Spain, and is growing in popularity. If you’re used to drinking Sauvignon blanc or Pinot grigio, this is the wine for you! Contrary to what some may think, it is actually not related to the Portugese variety with a very similar name, Verdelho. In fact, DNA profiling suggests it is most likely a sibling of Godello, a variety native to northwest Spain. Enjoy this little charmer with a variety of dishes like fish tacos, Thai food, papaya salad or even lemon-spritzed asparagus and steamed artichokes.
