Winemaker Notes

Wholly darker than it's Cabernet-centric cousin Tapteil, Camerata is deep, brooding, and intensely perfumed. Black cherries, plums and raspberries lurk along with minerals and spice. The most enjoyable part of the palate is the rich, glycerin mouth feel playing off of perfect acidity. Tannins are long, fine and very present even with the caressing mid-palate texture.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More aromatic and complex, the 2011 Bel Canto (84% Cabernet Franc and 8% each of Merlot and Petit Verdot) has a juicy, lively feel with its exotic spices, dried flowers, smoke and assorted mulled blackberry and currant-styled fruit. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and already approachable and balanced, it will evolve nicely over the coming decade.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It offers brooding notes of dried herbs, cassis, spicebox, blackberry and anise. Flavors are rich yet refined with mouthwatering acids and exquisitely polished tannins.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
This cabernet-dominant blend from Cadence’s home vineyard shows an unusually quiet side of Red Mountain, leading with savory scents of pipe tobacco and cedar, the black and blue fruit lying in wait. After a day, the fruit flavors start to take a central role, marked by firm, granular tannins that could find polish in the cellar.

Red Mountain Wine

Yakima Valley, Washington

View all products

A coveted source of top quality red grapes among premier Washington producers, the Red Mountain AVA is actually the smallest appellation in the state. As its name might suggest, it is actually neither a mountain nor is it composed of red earth. Instead the appellation is an anticline of the Yakima fold belt, a series of geologic folds that define a number of viticultural regions in the surrounding area. It is on the eastern edge of Yakima Valley with slopes facing southwest towards the Yakima River, ideal for the ripening of grapes. The area’s springtime proliferation of cheatgrass, which has a reddish color, actually gives the area the name, "Red" Mountain.

Red Mountain produces some of the most mineral-driven, tannic and age-worthy red wines of Washington and there are a few reasons for this. It is just about the hottest appellation with normal growing season temperatures commonly reaching above 90F. The soil is particularly poor in nutrients and has a high pH, which results in significantly smaller berry sizes compared to varietal norms. The low juice to skin ratio in smaller berries combined with the strong, dry summer winds, leads to higher tannin levels in Red Mountain grapes.

The most common red grape varieties here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, among others. Limited white varieties are grown, namely Sauvignon blanc.

The reds of the area tend to express dark black and blue fruit, deep concentration, complex textures, high levels of tannins and as previously noted, have good aging capabilities.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
