Blue Hall Vineyard "Camiana" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Member Review by Matt Walker:

You really just can't beat Howell Mountain for concentration and structure. Camiana comes from the tiny 3 acre Blue Hall Vineyard and is a wonderful hidden gem. This has a surprising amount of red fruits (Black cherry and creme de framboise) on the nose with touches of cedar. The palate gives way to darker black fruits, more cedarwood, spices, and charred marshmallow. Tight at first but opened up beautifully. The substantial tannins are well balanced with just the right amount of acidity.
