Wine Advocate | Rating: 97Made from 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot that's aging in 30% new French oak puncheons, the 2014 Camaspelo offers lots of cherry pit, black and blue fruits, violets and spice characteristics in a full-bodied, silky, polished style. It shows a touch of graphite with time in the glass, has building tannin and will keep for two decades.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Sleekly structured, offering a backbone of stony mineral and tannins that build momentum, with layered flavors of blackberry, orange zest and licorice. Hands-off for now. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2024. 335 cases made.Author: Tim Fish
In a state most often associated with rain and apples, vineyards occupy more land each year. Nearly all of this vineyard expansion has taken place in the eastern part of the state, where arid, almost desert-like conditions prevail. Winters are harsh and frost is always a threat, but such conditions, along with sandy soils, have allowed most Washington vines to grow on their own rootstocks—a rarity among wine regions throughout the world.
