Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, 3L (WA93+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon

3L

Vintage: 2010
Region: US
Appellation: Sonoma County

WA93+
Rated 93+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `I am totally enthralled by Kamen`s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, without question the most elegant wine I have tasted from this site on the hills outside Napa. Veins of chiseled, precise fruit come alive in the glass. Hints of dark red and black fruits lead to all sorts of flowers in a Cabernet Sauvignon that impresses for its total sense of elegance and polish. There is a lot to look forward to here. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateMore information from the Wine Advocate: `Proprietor Robert Kamen is probably best known for his many highly successful screenplays (including Taps, Karate Kid and The Fifth Element), but he appears equally at home on his large, sprawling property a few minutes outside Napa. Viticulturist Phil Coturri nurtures the vines, while Mark Herold is in charge of winemaking. I tasted a number of exceptional wines during the few hours I spent at the estate earlier this year. Although Kamen is best known for his Cabernets, the Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Syrah are every bit as gorgeous, but sadly there is precious little of them to go around. Readers fortunate enough to find these wines should not hesitate to check them out. The handful of 2012s I tasted were all promising. As is the case in many places throughout California, the 2010 reds are a notch above the 2009s. While a challenging season, 2010 at least gave Kamen and his team the chance to pick fully phenologically ripe fruit, while the 2009s were picked a bit earlier than would have otherwise been optimal because of the deteriorating weather.`
