Cam Confidential
Lot 304 Napa Valley Meritage is an expression of what is best in Bordeaux blending and really showcases the craftmanship of our artisan winemakers. The main component for this blend comes from a winery in Napa specializing in Cab Franc which produces really incredible juice with all the fixin's, pretty French oak, and ripe fruit. The remaining components are each sourced from different high-end producers and could easily stand on their own. While the tannins are well integrated and the wine will grow more succulent with each minute in the glass, this wine will continue to improve for years in the bottle.
