Nose of anise-laced dark berries and creme de cassis. Very rich and powerful. Full bodied with flavors of black raspberries and black currants, silky tannins and a long finish of beautiful dark fruit. Layered, with outstanding depth and complexity and richness. Awesome cab! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 6/5/10

Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of raspberry, cassis, violet and minerals. In a distinctly creamy style, but with a rocky minerality and firm acidity framing and lifting the black raspberry fruit. This concentrated, mineral-driven wine shows an intriguing suggestion of grapefruit peel and finishes with noteworthy persistence.

The 1,800-case cuvée of 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma is virtually identical, with perhaps less oak and structure. Both of these Cabernets beg for 4-5 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has closed down since I tasted it last year. Exhibiting a dense ruby/purple hue similar to the 2006rsquo;s, it is restrained aromatically, but is intense on the palate, revealing full-bodied flavors (sweet black raspberries and black currants), silky tannins, beautiful fruit depth, and a long finish. It can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years.

Kamen's brilliant 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more complete Cabernets I have tasted from that vintage. Beautiful blue and black fruit along with subtle background oak and floral aromas soar from the glass of this full-bodied effort. The wine possesses silky tannin (a good sign in this vintage), a layered mouthfeel, a long finish, and a pure, stylish, Margaux-like delicacy and complexity. It should drink well for 15-20 years. From a well-run, small operation in Sonoma, these impeccably well-made reds are fashioned by the well-known wine consultant, Mark Herold.

Tightly wound and firm, with roasted coffee, dried herb and dried berry flavors that are intense and concentrated, rustic and cedary, slowly moving into a pleasing loamy earthiness that gives this a distinctive quality. Best from 2012 through 2022.

Tightly wound, firm and tannic, this full-bodied red shows a mix of dried currant, mineral, graphite and lead pencil notes. Balanced and focused, yet taut, with a dry finish that echoes black licorice and dusty mineral. Best from 2010 through 2015.

Forget Screaming Eagle, Caymus and Silver Oak, Kamen is the next big thing.
