Wine Details

As dark as any Petite Sirah in the glass, this black hole of a wine looks intimidating, but is really classy in so many ways. The aromatics are still emerging and definitely improving - we've had this wine in bottle for six months now, and it’s just waking up. Blackcurrant, mocha and blackberry are nuanced by pretty white florals and well delineated on the palate, but clearly there is more to come here. The wine enters the palate harmonious and lithe, and just as it begins to share itself, a lovely wave of wooly tannins quiets down the party but leads to a long processional of fruit and tannin. Definitely a cellar candidate - the wine’s youth and structure indicate the best is yet to come.

Cam Confidential

Sourced from a small boutique family winery in St. Helena, crafted by a team with extensive European winemaking experience in addition to Napa Valley pedigree. The wine displays a New World richness compared to its Trentino cousin, but remains all class and will impress you with its deeply resinous, dark and inky personality.
