Since 1995 Chameleon Cellars has produced small lots of wine from select sustainably farmed vineyards in Californias premiere winegrowing regions. Originally formed as a partnership between producer Owsley Brown III and Winemaker Jeff Popick, Chameloen is now wholly owned by the Magnanimus Wine Group as a respected addition to their green portfolio of wines. Beginning in 2005, Owsley and Jeff began working with the consultation of Magnanimus winemaking team Steve Ryan and Paolo Caciorgna to refine the Chameleon wines and further blend old and new world winemaking style. These wines are crafted in a refreshing and fruity style that makes them great food wines. The aim is to retain the natural acidity and flavors for which Cal-Ital and Rhone style varietals are well known. Read less

Fabulous wine at a very attractive price! This is what Cabernet is all about: harmony, pretty fruit, judicious oak and great acidity. Why aren't there more wines like this out there?
