90% cabernet sauvignon, 10% 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.

Beguiling, complex aromas of red fruit, tobacco leaf and minerals. These notes are echoed on the palate, which expands and deepens with waves of focused fruit and minerality. There is real density and energy provided by low yields and early harvesting. The finish lingers, ending in dusty tannins that bode well for a 15+ year lifespan. This may be the finest Camerata we’ve produced.
