The nose of Lot 508 features gorgeously uplifted and beguiling aromas of violets, black pepper maple bacon, spicy blackberry and grilled meat. On the palate it's enticingly warm, where a noticeable “saline” effect and an open-knit construction lead to a rich amalgam of smoked meats, blackberry compote and toasty oak. Wow.

Style: Full, Smooth

Flavors: Mocha, Oak, Plum

Cam Confidential
Los Carneros straddles both Napa and Sonoma at the south end of Napa, featuring a cooler climate style due to its closer proximity to the San Pablo Bay. I can say very little about the producer, but the wine speaks for itself – this is an absolute stunner, and will easily outshine comparable wines priced at $40 and above.
