Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker Mark Herold comments, "The heat of May and June reduced the berry size of Cabernet Sauvignon and the ratio of skin thickness to juice was increased, therefore it was not suprising to see what has become a hallmark of the 2001 harvest- wines with terrific extraction of immense color and great intensity of flavor. 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."

We met Robert Kamen at a wine tasting here in Ohio, and weren't sure what we were getting into. But five years later, we opened his bottle along with a 2003 Chateua Montelena and a 1992 Grgich Hills. All Cabernet Sauvignon. We all agree, that the Kamen wins! It is fuller, with more body -- not yet as smooth in some aspects as the Grgich, but richer -- definitely more full bodied. I would recommend this wine to everyone who likes a full but smooth tasting Cab Sav.

Learn About Kamen Estate

In 1980, Robert Kamen, a native New Yorker, purchased 280 acres on the southwestern slopes of the Mayacamas Range in Sonoma County. This mountainous property was rugged, overgrown, extremely rocky and very remote: virgin territory with no roads and no power. It was isolated, wild, beautiful and full of potential. From the beginning, Robert had a clear concept of what he intended for his property. First and foremost was the desire to plant the highest quality Cabernet Sauvignon.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
