"Light-bodied but persistent, with a long, taut mineral thread that pierces the core of tea, damson plum, red currant and pomegranate notes, before ending with a splash of savory. A lovely example of the lean, racy style, this is carried deftly by mouthwatering acidity. Drink now through 2030. 350 cases made." Wine Spectator, 93 Points

"The 2020 Pinot Noir Julia’s Vineyard emerges from the oldest vines at Cambria, own-rooted Pinot planted in 1972. Crushed red berry fruit, mint, spice, sage and dried herbs are nicely lifted.  There’s an attractive savory quality to the 2020, even though all of the fruit was destemmed.  This mid-weight, ethereal Pinot is a real charmer." Vinous, 92 Points

"Terpene-laced aromas of damp herb and forest floor pick up umami-laden scents of dried meat on the nose of this bottling. The palate combines rugged tar, blood sausage and dried-meat flavors with sagebrush and seasoning salts on the savory palate." - Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points

"A lovely light ruby core with a bluish rim in the glass, the 2020 Julia’s Vineyard from Foxen was aged for 16 months in 29% new French oak. Blueberry preserves and grilled lemon notes on the palate combine with aromas of forest floor, grilled meat, and just a hint of fennel seed. Featuring grippy tannins and elevated acidity to keep things interesting. Approximately 350 cases were produced. " International Wine Report, 92 Points
