Immediate aromas of chocolate and mocha giving way to allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. As the wine opens up in the glass there are notes of dried strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry with a touch of dusty minerality.
On the palate, the initial flavor is intense mocha before delving into vanilla and chocolate.
The 2013 harvest was unbelievable in many ways. Following the amazing 2012 vintage, 2013 was, incredibly, even more spectacular. Many are confidently saying that this vintage looks to be the vintage of the decade. Each component of Cambium is individually selected every vintage, and only the very best of hundreds of lots make the final cut.
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 almost two years in our cellar before release. 100% French Oak.
