Wine Details

Gorgeous, lovely, and pure describe my overall impression of the wine (not to mention the word “soul”, which I wrote in my tasting notes). The aromatics take a few minutes to unwind, and reveal pretty red fruits like currant and ripe plum backed with a rocky minerality and dark chocolate notes. The aromatics continue to grow in the glass and will in the bottle as well. However, it’s the palate that truly reveals what this wine is all about - beautifully textured and succulent, with lithe tannins and superbly integrated red and black fruits. While the wine achieves a rare sense of balance and harmony, there is solid fruit impact as well.

Cam Confidential

Sourced from a $75/bottle producer with Hwy 29 frontage, the wine is is primarily upper-elevation Calistoga fruit grown about 750 feet off the valley floor. The other 20% of the overall blend is half Howell Mountain Cabernet and half Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet. While we don’t know the exact oak regimen, we estimate about 35-40% new French oak on the wine.

I would not put this in the same class as many other CH Napa Cabs, still a good wine for the price I paid, especially considering the pedigree. Would recommend aerating at a minimum, definitely opened up after breathing for a while.

This is another very good Cab for the price. Classic Black Cherry flavors. This goes great with almost everything even grilled chicken.

Great value for the money. Exceptionally dry without sacrificing flavor.

Not exactly like what I would expect of a typical "Napa" Cab, but certainly not bad, just different. Not much sweetness nor floral aroma, but a very solid, dry, plumb and coco taste. I found this wine to be fun and well worth the money!

This wine really blew me away. Had a nice, spicy flavor, and not too fruity. It's hard for me to describe what I found so appealing about it, but this wine was a definite winner in my book. Would go well with a steak or pasta with red sauce. It smells a lot fruitier than it tastes... an outstanding bottle.

nice burgundy color, smells like jam and strawberries, dark and not that fruity, finishes dry.

This cab is not like other cabs. It's young and soft. Not as rich as other cabernets. Not quite bitter either. This wine could go well with just about any dinner. It's the Pinot Noir of Cabernets.

Disappointing. I even tried the 24 hour decant. For this price range 400 or 404 are a better value.
