Wine Details

Pours just a shade off squid ink. Opens with lovely white flower florals, ripe blackberry, black cherry, and toasty oak all coming together in what is already a gorgeous nose despite only now beginning to unwind. With just a few minutes of air the aromatics get really vibrant – there’s a real electricity to the fruit here. Generous on the palate with supple, fine-grained, well-proportioned tannins all beautifully balanced with rich black fruit echoing through a lengthy finish.

Cam Confidential

Produced by a Napa Valley winery from a Sonoma Valley vineyard just west of the famed Monte Rosso Vineyard (and by just west I mean maybe a few hundred yards down the hillside), this wine was an absolute standout, not only holding its own but outperforming Oakville and Rutherford offerings from the same winery at double the price.

Dark, inky, and exquisite, it’s a beautiful Cabernet that perfectly sums up the 2016 vintage with its combination of power, finesse, beguiling aromatics, and supple mouthfeel. Perfectly proportioned in every way and a terrific testament to underappreciated terroir of the cooler hillside regions in the southern portions of Sonoma Valley, this is some of the classiest juice you’ll ever see at $29/bottle – not surprising, given the fruit for this wine was the anchor component in a $100/bottle Icon-level Cabernet Sauvignon.
