Wine Advocate | Rating: 76The 2012 Pinot Noir Camp Meeting Ridge Block 11 comes from a lower yielding block with only 20% whole clusters used. It was made from the Swan, Pommard and Wadenswil clones as well as Dijon clones 114 and 115. It possesses a light, diluted color, notes of pomegranates, plums and berries, and fades quickly in the mouth. Once again, there is just not a lot there. Drink it up.Author: Robert Parker
