2012 Cambium

Vintage   |  2013 2012 2011 2010 

Dark red color with immediate aromas of flourless chocolate cake and dark roast coffee giving way to raspberry, wild flowers, and chocolate covered cherry.  On the palate the wine is rich and velvety, with flavors of dark chocolate, chocolate covered espresso beans, toasted walnuts, and blackberry tart.  The mouth feel of the wine is balanced, smooth and ethereal, leaving only complex flavors on the tongue that go on and on.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

Each component of Cambium is individually selected every vintage, and only the very best of hundreds of lots are chosen. This 2012 Cambium includes Cabernet Sauvignon from Tonella (Rutherford), Morisoli (Rutherford) and Stagecoach (Atlas Peak) vineyards, Cabernet Franc from Tonella (Rutherford) and Frediani (Calistoga) vineyards and Merlot from Henry Brothers (Howell Mountain) vineyard. 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 100% French oak before bottling, then aged two years in our cellar before release in May 2016.
