Richly aromatic with ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar, the wine shows really well in the nose even now with just a few weeks in the bottle. Luscious black and blue fruits merge with licorice in an elegant style supported by ripe tannins and framing acidity. The mid palate is predictably light on fruit given the short time in bottle, but comes up admirably on the finish with blueberries and licorice and well-integrated tannins. Note: While this wine is a 2008, it was just bottled in June, so do us (and yourself) a favor and wait a few months to open this wine!

Flavors: Blackberry, Blueberry, Cassis, Licorice, Tannins

Cam Confidential
The wine hails from a rather famous vineyard up on Spring Mountain that has been in what is pretty much a perpetual state of development since the 1960's. Spring Mountain is a rather cool climate and growing grapes up there is an adventure as fruit struggles to ripen each year. Luckily the 2008 vintage (as well the 2009) were both just about as good as it gets from the site.
