CAY-119

‘Camaspelo’, Cayuse Vineyards

Tasting Notes

Possessing a Bordeaux feel in its aromatics and tannic structure on the palate, the 2013 Camaspelo has lots of cassis, lead pencil shavings, smoke and toasted bread nuances to go with a full-bodied, nicely balanced, yet structured and tight profile on the palate. It picks up more minerality with time in the glass and is a possible blockbuster. –Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
