Camerata 2014

86% cabernet sauvignon, 14% cabernet franc

camerata, n. a. A group living together harmoniously or pursuing a common artistic or intellectual interest, b. A small group of musicians or singers who perform together, typically specializing in chamber music, c. Cadence Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from its estate, Cara Mia Vineyard.

Camerata aromatically leads with black cherries, hints of cinnamon spiciness, and plums. The palate surprises with deep fruit intensity buffered by an uncommonly velvety texture for Cabernet Sauvignon. Stunning concentration and length but the package is surprisingly supple. Perhaps the most complete Camerata to date.
