In 1980, screenwriter Robert Kamen purchased 280 acres of the southwestern slopes of the Mayacamas Range in Sonoma County. This mountainous property was rugged, overgrown, extremely rocky and very remote: virgin territory with no roads and no power. It was isolated, wild, beautiful and full of potential. Viticulturist Phil Coturri was brought into the project to develop and oversee the master plan. The vineyards are all biodynamically farmed. His vineyards are located in Sonoma Valley, on the backside of Mount Veeder, and year after year this is one of the finest Cabernets to come out of the area. 2018 was not a great vintage only in Napa; in fact, this shows that some of the Napa guys can still learn a thing or two from Sonoma!

With phenomenal concentration, this wine has a core of ripe black-raspberries, wild blackberries, black currants and freshly picked cherries that anchor the aromatic profile. Bright notes of freshly picked wildflowers followed by hints of sunbaked rocks after the rain, marzipan, Oolong tea, black cardamom and milk chocolate add tremendous depth and complexity. The flavors follow suit and are richly layered, exquisitely balanced and refined. This deliciously seamless wine offers ripe, mouthwatering tannins and a lengthy finish. Enjoy now and over its decades long evolution.

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - "A gorgeous wine, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is also one of the most elegant wines I have ever tasted from Kamen. It expresses all of the natural intensity of this site, but with a bit less extraction than in the past. which is not a bad thing at all. Blackberry jam, gravel, lavender, chocolate and crushed rocks flesh out in a sensual, wonderfully inviting Cabernet that hits all the right notes. The 2018 could benefit from a few years in bottle, but it is absolutely stellar today."
