Cam Confidential
Sourced from an excellent winery in Arroyo Seco, this bottle comes from a $30 dollar bottle program that we hope to have the opportunity to source from again. We're currently looking at their 2010 vintage and have been really impressed with the complexity of their wines and winegrowing skills. These guys have been making wine since the early seventies and are pioneers of great California wines.
