ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - "The Kamen 2018s and 2019s are brilliant. Longtime winemaker Mark Herold knows this property like the back of his hand, and it comes through in big, dramatically rich wines that also capture the essence of site. The reds are the stars, but the whites, which are made in tiny quantities, are every bit as special."
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is mostly Martini clone from the core of the estate. A heady, ample wine, the 2019 is endowed with striking opulence. Blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, new leather, licorice and mocha shows tremendous depth. Attractive floral notes emerge with a bit of aeration, adding brightness. The contours are remarkably soft for a young mountain Cabernet. These wines age beautifully, their youthful opulence notwithstanding, so I would not be in a rush here."
WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "Alluring, with steeped plum and cassis notes cruising through, backed by lively licorice snap, bramble and sweet tobacco accents. A long echo of singed alder permeates on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2034. 2,250 cases made."
