Wine Details

Big and exuberant with densely packed fruit and seamlessly integrated oak. Its thick cardinal/purple color is braced by crushed boysenberry, cassis, pipe-smoke, and licorice flavors that are supported with refined tannins, a full-bodied texture, tremendous purity and length.

Cam Confidential

This is one of a few Chalk Hill Cabs that are sourced from one of the most beautiful vineyards I have ever seen (grapes always seem to grow best in beautiful places). This wine is our 4th and best vintage to come out of this grower/winery. It's huge—spanning more than 500 acres, several hundred of which are planted to grapes and almost all of which are hillside with little nooks and crannies that create a variety of microclimates. The vineyard is the source of many different grape varietals for something like 20 small, ultra-premium brands (though we control all the Cabernet off the vineyard). The winery that was previously buying the fruit was putting it into its $60 Cabernet.

Here I am enjoying my last bottle of lot 230, March of 2017. It is superb. Can't say enough about cellaring your wine. You're on the money about this one CH.

Opened a bottle two nights ago. First pour it tasted a little thin. After about an hour it really started developing. Finishing the bottle tonight, very robust. Amazing how much wines change, given a little time.
