Tasting Notes

Korbin Kameron Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
“Outstanding” 94 points
“The 2005 Korbin Kameron is a gorgeous wine. 100% Cabernet with well integrated aromas of strawberry preserves, anise seed, pepper and briary black fruit that introduce an ultra-smooth texture. Rich and complex dark fruit on the palate lingers through the finish with a nice balance of toasted oak and exotic spices. The structure and balance is definitively Cabernet, and the elegance this wine shows is an attribute of this wonderful vineyard site. 

Opal Moon Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
“Classic” 95+ points
“Offering a sumptuous bouquet loaded with red and black fruit, sage and cocoa, the 2012 Opal Moon is an absolutely delight to taste. The palate shows soft, silty tannins and the classic “Rutherford dust” texture. Fine layers of black plum and currant are amplified with dark chocolate and baking spices. This is a treat to drink now and will continue to offer pleasure for another 4-5 years.”
