Cameron Pinot Bianco 2008
Another entry from the Oregonian cult producer Cameron – this time a much more affordable and good value wine. While this isn’t a wine for the cellar or something that will blow your mind, it is a very well made wine at a good price that is extremely likeable.
The nose had big orchard fruit, pear, and a nice floral component. This is almost like a southern Rhone white with a hint of licorice. The palate is all apple, pear and flowers. There is a ton of fruit here, but also good acidity, slight effervescence and a viognier-like honeysuckle edge. Full and round, but balanced. You may be waiting for the next summer to pick up a white, but personally I like to have a few now and then even in the drab months, particularly for pairing with asian foods.
