Cam Confidential

Lot 316 was constructed from mountainous vineyard flanking either side of the Napa valley, in the Mayacamas to the west and the easterly Vaca range. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc add texture and dimension to the blend. The wine has a ripe and uplifted nose which is underpinned by fleshy black fruit and serious mountain structure. The fact that great vineyards make great wines is really evident in this Cabernet. Soaring aromatics, pure fruit and classic mountain character come together in a stunning package.

Dom

Nice supple & smooth medium body Cabernet, flavor profile developed nicely after 1+ hour decant.

William

Surprisingly translucent magenta. Bramble, blueberry and spice nose. Medium bodied, bright cherries, spicey oak, concentrated raspberries, very soft tannins, pepper, smoke, and a tangy medium length finish.

An excellent fruit forward cab with good balance and full body. Decanting really brings out the layers of black fruit. One of my favorite CH cabs.

A superb, somewhat fruity, but very smooth Cabernet. A favorite from CH. Down to one bottle. Wish there were more available.

A very enjoyable, fruity Cab. You don't need food with this, just drink and enjoy.

It was closed at first, but grows on you after a while. I recommend letting this one breathe.
