Gros Ventre Cellars Campbell Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
The 2016 Campbell Ranch is limited and beautiful. We selected the four best barrels from this site, resulting in less than 100 total cases, the least amount of wine we’ve ever made from this vineyard. It explodes in the glass with aromas of bright red fruits like pomegranate, cassis, and strawberry, coupled with subtle scents of fir tips, menthol, and sweet spices. This is a complex yet thoroughly enjoyable wine that is supple and vibrant on the palate with a finish that lingers forever. 97 cases produced.

VinousThe 2016 Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch is a dark, brooding wine. Blue/purplish fruit, lavender and spice notes are pushed forward. There is a good bit of up-front fruit and overall intensity, but the 2016 could use another year or two in bottle to allow the tannins to soften. Even so, this Campbell Ranch is quite attractive. It is also one of the most compelling wines in a superb lineup from Chris Pittenger.
