Vibrant carmine in color with riveting aromas of strawberries, cherry, jolly rancher, and juicy red fruit. The mid-palate is layered in mouthwatering richness. A sumptuous wine with great acidity and crisp finish.

Style: Full, Bold

Cam Confidential
We had originally planned on making a Cabernet Rosé from the free run juice (or saignee) of the Hughes Wellman Cabernet program and we did. Then along came the saignee from another high-end ($80+) Napa Cabernet producer and the two blended beautifully. Lot 256 2010 Napa Valley Rosé is made in a dry style and color wise falls somewhere in between a typical Provence Rosé (pale salmon, almost orange in color) and the darker red New World Rosé’s. I would call it wild salmon in color with tints of orange and red. The wine is sourced purely from Cabernet and from very high-end programs. As such it requires a bit of splashing around to open up and has the structure to age beautifully over the next three to four years (maybe longer but I don’t have much of a benchmark for aging Rosé).
