2011 Cambium

Vintage   |  2012 2011 2010 

Dark red in color with an immediate hit of chocolate and mocha, followed by allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. As the wine opens up, there are flavors of dried strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry with a touch of dust and mineral notes in the background. Velvety tannins carry the wine overall, supported with a mineral freshness, and ending with a lingering chocolate/spice flavor.

Description


HARVEST & WINEMAKING

Each component of Cambium is individually selected every vintage, and only the very best of hundreds of lots make the final cut. This 2011 Cambium includes Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Tonella Vineyard (Rutherford), Cabernet Sauvignon from Stagecoach Vineyard (Atlas Peak) and Cabernet Franc from Frediani Vineyard (Calistoga). All of the fruit was picked by hand, then sorted twice, first by cluster, then berry by berry. After a two-day cold soak, the individual lots were inoculated with an assortment of French yeast strains. The wine aged for 22 months in French oak before bottling, then aged almost two years in our cellar before release in May 2015.
