Each component of Cambium is individually selected every vintage, and only the very best of hundreds of lots make the final cut. This 2009 Cambium includes Cabernet Sauvignon from Healy Vineyard in St. Helena; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc from the Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak; Cabernet Franc from Saviez Vineyard in Calistoga; Cabernet Sauvignon from Lamoreaux Vineyard in Oak Knoll; and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Morisoli Vineyard in Rutherford.
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 19 months in our cellar before release in March 2013.
