Wine Details

An excellent example of alluvial benchland Cabernet, starting with dusty plum notes (“Rutherford Dust,” anyone?), pretty acacia flower, and cherry/blackcurrant/blackberry fruit. With just a little bit of air, it blooms a gorgeous perfume of sweet, spicy florals, rich plum, and electric cherry and blackcurrant notes all riding a gravelly spine. Absolutely gorgeous and notable for its bright, well defined fruit. On the palate it’s densely textured, yet juicy and energetic with chocolatey plum, cherry, blackcurrant and black pepper notes suavely fleshed out in a long, sweeping finish that foretells of much more to come. The oak integration here is perfect, and while the wine is beautiful now, it definitely benefits from air and will drink much better than the 2013s did this time last year. The 2014s are amply built with energetic fruit, freshness and approachability, with exciting down the road potential.

Cam Confidential

The first release of our exciting Fall Cabernet Countdown starts with Lot 601, sourced from the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Oak Knoll matters most when you get into the northwest corner of the appellation, where you’ll same volcanically derived, stony, gravelly, alluvial fanned creek drainages that comprise the Oakville and Rutherford benches between Highway 29 and the Mayacamas Mountains. In fact, I would argue this area of Oak Knoll is really an extension of the Rutherford/Oakville/Yountville benches west of Highway 29, just a couple degree-days cooler. Lot 601 comes from an estate vineyard in the northwest corner of Oak Knoll (near the estate vineyards for Trefethen, Groth, Beckstoffer and Shiflett) and directly from the source winery’s $90+ Reserve program.

This is my favorite. It's big, bold and smooth.

This was a nice cab, but I agree that it needs a little time to decant. Bought several bottles and am looking forward to trying in several months.

A big, full bodied Cab. I can easily understand why it won so many rewards.

I received this as a gift and will be ordering some soon as we really enjoyed this cabernet.

I thought this wine was a great value and it taste was in keeping with a much more expensive offering.

Good sipping cab but nothing to brag about. I'm not a fruity cab guy. Will not buy again.

I received this wine as part of the Elite Napa sampler. This wine was my second out of the bunch to the 609. Gave it a 2 hour decant and it paired very well with venison. Good to drink right now, will try again in a couple years.

This is quite frankly one the best cabernet I ever had. The high alcohol content and the dense structure is noticeable at the very first sip.
