AG 92 WE 92 WA 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "Dark red cherries, menthol, cinnamon, licorice, plums and sweet spices all flesh out in the 2011 Pinot Noir Bench Break. Translucent and weightless, yet full of flavor, the 2011 is an exceptional wine loaded with class and pedigree. A racy, ripe finish supported by vibrant saline notes leaves a lasting impression."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "This is another fine Pinot from Cambria, showing the winery’s great price-quality ratio. Words like opulent and elegant come to mind to describe intense flavors of black cherries, licorice, cola, herb tea and Indian spices. It’s bone dry, and also quite tannic, but you can enjoy it now with big, rich lamb and beef dishes, or a wild mushroom risotto. Otherwise, it will continue to improve for at least eight years."
According to Wine Advocate - "More complex and layered, the 2011 Pinot Noir Bench Break has complex underbrush, saddle leather, wild flowers and spice to go with a core of red currant-styled fruit. Medium-bodied, seamless and supple, with a silky, rich texture, it’s an outstanding Pinot Noir that will offer upwards of a decade of longevity. Drink 2015-2021."
Winemakers Notes - "Try our Bench Break Pinot Noir with mushrooms and trufes, roasted tomatoes, lentils, let mignon, grilled pork loin, and hazel nuts. It also pairs well with cheeses such as Gruyere, Rochetta and Fontina." 100% Pinot Noir. 14.5% ABV.
