Vintage Rating Publication 2005 90-92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The Bordeaux-like, elegant 2005 Cameron, a proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, exhibits terrific balance, a Margaux-like finesse, a floral/berry-scented bouquet, medium body, sweet tannin, and a long finish. There is enough substance to provide 10-12 years of drinkability. 2003 90-93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The deep ruby/purple tinged 2003 Cameron (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Malbec) possesses more power and fruit concentration than the 2002. It possesses lovely floral, berry, and black currant notes, a distinctive hint of pen ink, and a certain minerality. With fine density, concentration, and overall harmony, sweet tannin, and a long, persistent finish, it should drink well between 2007 - 2016. Aromas of black cherry, blackberry and dried flowers mingle with a distinct clove like undertone. On the palate this wine is a heavy hitter with good flavors of milk chocolate, hazelnut and dark fruit culminating with a long finish with nuances of toasty oak.
