The 2014 CAMi Napa Valley Estate Red Wine offers pretty aromatics, elegant and a bit floral at times (violets and rose petal) with cedar and tobacco leaf and more nuanced secondary aromas. Packed with flavor – supple from start to finish offering flavors of blackberry. A plushness, a tangible softness shows on the finish – which lingers with both fruit, hints of mocha, toasted oak and a darker spice presence. Easy to drink.
The 2015 CAMi Napa Valley Estate Red Wine. Crimson on the rim and dark in the core, opulent and fruit driven aromatics make this a wine you immediately want to take a sip of. Bright aromatics show ripe boysenberry, blackberry, spicy plum, old cedar box and hints of cinnamon. As the wine continues to breathe, more subtle aromas of brown sugar are revealed. Very well constructed in its balance – this wine is seamless across the palate. Dark fruit – blackberry, tinged with toasted vanilla and oak linger on the finish. Smooth and supple, the integration of the slightly dusty and woodsy tannins and the fruit lingers nicely for quite some time. Very approachable in its youth.
