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.

Redolent cinnamon and cherry nose along with classic Left Bank pencil lead. These are echoed on the palate, which is sumptuously textured, deeply fruited, and luxuriously long. The tannin/acid balance is meant for the long haul, but it’s gorgeous right now.
