Just wow – What a beautifully crafted Pinot Noir. There is nothing overdone here. Crisp, juicy summer fruits. Strawberries, raspberries with a little bitter cherry. A sweet, spicy, long finish which goes on for minutes.
Possibly even better than their superb 2012. Dark, brooding with extraordinary balance and purity. Incredibly expressive but not brash. Complex mix of fruit, spice and flowers. This is just exquisite.
This Pinot Noir is blessed with an incredibly intense, powerful nose - the perfume is extraordinary, almost exotic. Although young, the palate is showing beautiful structure, filigree tannins and is utterly sensuous. This is an irresistible Campbell Ranch, a little fatter and more generous than the previous two vintages.

The 2014 Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch Vineyard is one of the more overt, fruit-driven wines in the line-up. The small berries here give the wine an intense, almost flamboyant sense of ripeness that stands out. Expressive floral notes round out the close. There is a directness and sense of immediacy to the Campbell Ranch that is compelling.
There is everything to like here – Juicy, ripe Pinot fruit bursts from the glass however, more complexity, perfume and sweetness appears with a little more aeration. It would be a shame if you missed out on this very sexy wine, which is built for immediate pleasure.
