Cambria Winery Santa Maria Valley
Part of the giant KENDALL JACKSON Group, Cambria is its Central Coast flagship. It is by no means small with the total area under vine now some 565 ha (1,400 acres). Top-flight Pinot Noir is ripe and full of red-berry fruit, and particular noteworthy are a number of Pinot Clone listed bottlings as well as Chardonnays which are barrel-fermented with lees-ageing to add weight and complexity. Nicely structured Syrah has good brambly fruit intensity, more Saint-Joseph than Hermitage. (DM)
