The aromas of the 2001 Kamen Cabernet are very expressive with big complex, dark, juicy black fruits of blackberries, black raspberries and plums interlaced with notes of violets, minerals and hints of coffee, spice and toasty oak. The mouth filling entry has enticing, luscious flavors and silky tannins. On the palate, the wine is intense with concentrated, full, ripe black fruit and hints of violets, cinnamon and roses. The wine is seamless and concentrated with a balanced tannic structure that is satisfying from start to finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis mountain wine stuns with its intensity. You can taste the sunny concentration in every sip of cherry and black currant fruit. The tannins are a work of art, rich and elaborate and flamboyant, while the acids are tight and balancing. Beautiful right out of the gate, but a guaranteed ager.

Wine AdvocateThis organically farmed Sonoma Mountain vineyard has produced a 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon with a deep ruby/purple color, sweet fruit, and notes of licorice, black currants, herbs, and earth. Medium to full-bodied and well-made, if additional complexity and nuances emerge, it will merit an even higher score. Drink it over the next decade.

Wine SpectatorLean and firm, with a rich, complex band of currant, anise, cedar and a touch of lead pencil. Finishes with dry, tight, cedary tannins that give it a sense of austerity, which some will find more appealing than others. Best from 2006 through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,610 cases made.
