CAMERON, RED WINE BLEND

Napa Valley

201393 PointsAntonio Galloni, Vinous Media
Fisher's 2013 Red Wine Cameron is flat-out delicious. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, leather and cedar are all super-expressive in the glass. Drink this exuberant, racy red over the next handful of years. This is an especially ripe, forward wine for the year, but I doubt that will be too much of an issue for a wine that is meant to be enjoyed on release. There is no shortage of near term appeal here.

The other 2013s include an outstanding 2013 Cameron Proprietary Red. A similar blend to the 2012, the wine is deep ruby/purple with notes of cedar wood, licorice, white flowers and blue and black fruits. It is medium-bodied, elegant and, again, a somewhat modern California take on a St.-Emilion from Bordeaux. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.

The 2012 Cameron Proprietary Red, a blend of 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and the rest other Bordeaux varietals, shows supple tannins and is a nice medium-bodied, elegant, almost St.-Emilion-laden Napa style of wine, with fruitcake, tobacco leaf, spice box and red and blackcurrants. Drink it over the next decade or so.

(made from a blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% malbec): Inky ruby. Aromas and flavors of candied dark berries, violet, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Sappy and open-knit, showing a velvety texture and picking up an exotic Indian spice nuance with air. Closes smooth and long, with slow-building tannins and a late jolt of licorice pastille.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cameron, a young vines bottling from Coach Insignia, is a gorgeous, accessible wine, especially within the context of the year. Juicy dark raspberries, flowers, mint, savory herbs spices and licorice all take shape in this vibrant, vinous Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a rare 2010 with considerable early appeal. Freshly cut roses and spices add lift on a finish laced with considerable energy and freshness. The 2010 is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Malbec.

Saturated ruby. Expressive, spice-accented aromas of redcurrant, cherry and licorice, with subtle mocha and smoke notes building with air. Juicy, seamless red berry and cherry compote flavors are lifted by gentle acidity, showing an appealing sweetness. A touch of bitter chocolate lingers on the long, spicy finish. I find this wine very easy to drink right now.

Deep, bright ruby. Redcurrant, cherry and dried flowers on the nose, with a peppery note in the background. Taut and focused on entry, then fleshier and broader in the middle, offering gently sweet red berry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Shows very good clarity and bite on the firm, focused finish. This is 100% cabernet sauvignon and is made mostly from young vines in the Lamb Vineyard.

The 2007 Cameron Proprietary Red is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers gorgeous blueberry, blackberry, forest floor, and floral aromas that jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored effort. Rich and opulent with well-integrated sweet tannins, acidity, and wood, this is a young, exceptionally pure, beautifully textured, long wine that can be drunk now and over the next 15-20 years.

The superb, deep ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Cameron reveals aromas and flavors of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, charcoal, and graphite. With a superb texture, a full-bodied mouth-feel and a long, lush finish, it appears to be the finest Cameron made to date. It should age easily for 15+ years.

One of the finest 2006s is the 2006 Cameron Proprietary Red. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it reveals silky tannins as well as plush red and black currant fruit interwoven with dusty, loamy soil, spice box, and a hint of tobacco leaf. This soft, stylish, St.-Emilion-like offering should drink nicely for a decade.

A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 2% Malbec, the 2005 Cameron Proprietary Red Wine offers outstanding potential. Aromas of black raspberries, black cherries, cassis, wood, lead pencil shavings, and spice box are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannin, superb purity, and a tight, but promising, long finish. Give it 1-2 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 15+.

The deep ruby/purple tinged 2003 Cameron (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Malbec) possesses more power and fruit concentration than the 2002. It possesses lovely floral, berry, and black currant notes, a distinctive hint of pen ink, and a certain minerality. With fine density, concentration, and overall harmony, sweet tannin, and a long, persistent finish, it should drink well between 2007 - 2016.

The 2002 Cameron Proprietary Red (33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and the rest equal parts Malbec and Cabernet Franc) is an elegant, medium-bodied effort displaying attractive mineral, black currant, white chocolate, dried herb, and spice box characteristics. It could easily pass for a St. Emillion pr Graves in a blind tasting. Atypically measured and nuanced by California standards, it will drink well for 10-12 years.
