Wine Details

The color is practically opaque, with an electric magenta tint. The pleasure is immediate, opening with a boisterous mashup of raspberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, and toasty oak. Entry on the palate is plush, and a dense structure opens up with air to reveal layers of red and black fruits backed with more toasty oak in long finish. This is classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from a fantastic vintage that combines the opulence of 2013 with a more inviting structure. Just a baby right now, but obviously plenty more to come with age.

Cam Confidential

Due to the sensitive nature of the deal, I actually can’t disclose anything at all about who made this wine. I got the inside track from a friend who, while making a visit to one of his clients, learned of some Napa Cabernet they were willing to move quietly. He called me as he walked out the door, and after listening to him gush excitedly about the quality of the wine, I asked for samples and closed the deal almost immediately upon tasting. Sourced from a triple digit $/bottle program, the wine is comprised of 75% Rutherford fruit, with the balance coming from St. Helena and Calistoga.

Not quite as good as the 609 yet but may catch up with age, but have a few friends who already prefer it over the 9. It is worth a try for the price.

Give it time to breathe, the longer the better. Wine has just enough bite of acidity and ample dark-purple fruits. This also dark-purple colored wine has a long finish. A nice companion for a fillet-steak dinner.

I opened this cab and immediately poured a glass. At first, I was not particularly impressed. I then let it breathe for an hour or so and it opened up nicely. The next evening I finished the bottle and was really glad I purchased the 610. It’s a winner. Thanks Cam.

Very tightly wound at first so give it ample time to breathe. After 2 hours out of bottle really opened with balanced structure and great fruit.

The quality of the fruit was very evident in this. We had this with tenderloin at Christmas. The first glass was pop and pour while cooking, but it really showed itself by the time dinner was ready. Rutherford dust was not pronounced, which is what we usually crave in our cab-drinking. Still, with a roasted tenderloin and not grilled meat, it was a perfect accompaniment to our dinner. It's more bright fruit in nature.

Tight the first day but really came to life day 2! Black cherry, cocoa, spice with hints of nutmeg and oak. Dried blackberries with dusty tannins. Really delicious but needs more time in the bottle. Yummy!!!

Young, and a bit tight right now. Does not give up is full flavors till the second night when cedar tones come out.

Very nice wine but needs time to open up. Initial impression was just ok - but kept getting better as the evening progressed. Decant for a couple hours or hide this one away in the cellar for a while.

Hard to believe you can actually buy a wine of this quality for $32.00. Amazingly well made wine from grapes of finest quality.Well structured, firm, dark color, and a long pleasant finish that lasts forever. This is no ordinary wine. Truly worth every cent and more. This wine will mellow for at least 7-10 years.
