At a full 91% of the blend, this could be labeled as Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc rounding it out. It’s shut down aromatically at present with assorted dried herbs poking through. The palate brings highly structured fruit flavors, with vibrant acidity tying it all together. Decant for a day if drinking in the near term; it will be best after 2022.

Wine AdvocateSensational stuff, the 2012 Camerata (91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc) is big, burly effort that offers classic Red Mountain structure and depth. Giving up lots of black cherry, crushed rocks, dried violets and graphite, it is savory, powerful and concentrated on the palate. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will hold for two decades after that.

Wine SpectatorFirm and chewy, with tannins around a sleek core of licorice-accented blackberry and currant fruit that keeps welling up as the finish persists with elegance. Harmonious. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2018 through 2022. 290 cases made.
