Wine Details

Lot 385 is gloriously appointed with dense black fruit, toasty oak, and bramble with beautiful graphite and violet notes. The core of the wine is dark and alluring, with the hallmark fine-grained tannins delivering graceful texture to support a wonderful core of black fruit in a long finish. Classic, stunning Stags Leap.

Cam Confidential

Lot 385 comes to us from a superb new winery in Stags Leap that wanted to wait for the 2012 vintage to launch their inaugural release. We were more than happy to take the entire 2011 vintage off their hands.

Last bottle of this. Huge aromatic fruit forward bouquet with rasberry and cherry overtones. Rich dark fruit flavor smooth and slightly tannic with hint of pepper undertone. Dark garnet color.

Pulled this bottle for our anniversary dinner. Decanted for about two hours before dinner. Very nice dark ruby color and great taste of blackberry and cherry. I'm thinking it will only get better over the next few years. Paired with steak, asparagus and grilled mushrooms. This wine deserves a 91 point rating. Very nice.

Tight right out of the bottle but, after an hour or so decant, the flavors came out. A big mid palate cherry bomb then, about a half an hour later, berry flavors (blackberry in particular) came through. A very nice wine to sip over the course of an evening.

We let it breath while we prepared dinner and enjoyed this stunning Cab. Will fight the urge and let the remaining 11 bottles age into their full glory.

After 30 minutes in the glass - WOW. Great intensity, complexity and drinkability. Sold Out, so just bought 3 other cabs from Cam - every bottle so far has been a terrific. I've told a couple friends, however fear demand for Cam's wine may exceed supply. Keep the great wine comin. My trouble is letting them sit and age.

Thoroughly enjoyed it over the holidays. Would be better in a year or so.

It appears that the new venture produced a trial run from the 2011 vintage, declassified it, and sold it off. That leaves us to ponder what an exceptional winemaking team could do with a somewhat variable vintage. Lot 385 is a superb effort. It is infanticide to drink it now, yet it begs to be sampled. The floral element in the nose suggests that there may be Cabernet Franc in a blend. The nose is slow to open, yields to a bit of humidor and sweet oak, and the components need time to integrate. If you must sample it now, decant it, and let it sit for hours as Pierre suggests in his review. I left a bottle open overnight., to the advantage of the wine. Entry is tight and tannic. This really needs time to bloom, but the monolithic quality will evolve. Take a flyer on this offering while it is still available, for it is both enjoyable and educational.

I bought this wine last year and was hoping for a stags leap experience, but was severely disappointed. Tonight I opened a bottle and was blown away. Holy Cow. I immediately ordered another case to put down with those I bought last year. OMG, these will only get better year after year. They show great potential. Grab some before its gone guys.

I will add my voice to the Hallelujah Chorus backing this wine. I have been drinking CH Cabs since the early days and this is the most distinctive of them all. Class and quality. By now, the producer is a poorly kept secret. A rare opportunity to enjoy a first class Napa Cabernet at a bargain basement price. Yes, age will bring improvement, but it is a joyful experience right now.
