    The 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.

  • California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
