Camerata 2016

80% cabernet sauvignon, 20% 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.

Spices leap out of the glass, followed by crushed red fruit and graphite.  This is as aromatic as any young Camerata has ever been. Red and black fruit interplay on the palate with more minerality and spice weaving in and out of the fruit framework. This is deep, intense and energetic. Fine tannins rise through the finish, leaving an impression long after the sip is done.
