Cayuse Camaspelo 2007
|Appellation||Walla Walla Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe Bordeaux-styled reds begin with the 2007 Camaspelo, a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc. The already complex aromatics reveal mineral, Asian spices, incense, violets, black currant and black cherry. In the mouth it offers a lovely combination of power and elegance, along with ripe tannins, leading to a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give it 4-6 years of additional cellaring and drink it through 2022.
Wine SpectatorSmooth, round and complex, with black olive and balsamic overtones playing against dark berry and black cherry fruit, lingering effectively on the deft finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2015. 356 cases made.
