Winemaker Notes

Dark, deep black licorice aromas. Black fruit - cherries and blackberry - on palate. The muscular tannins and acidity are deftly balanced. Intensely energetic, brooding, and not at all forward at this early stage, this wine will unfold gracefully for years to come. After an hour in the decanter the tannin are silky, and the flavors and tannins broaden and deepen magnificently. P>Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A significantly different blend from the 2012, which was over 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Camerata checks in as 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, which like the Bel Canto spent 23 months in 50% new French oak. Possessing a fabulous bouquet of black currants, toasted spice, licorice and wild herbs, this full-bodied 2013 is concentrated, incredibly elegant and textured, with ripe tannin and a balanced, layered style that will evolve gracefully. It should be at its best from 2020-2033.

Wine Enthusiast
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot. Aromas of black fruit, spice and black licorice are followed by dark-fruit flavors that bring a dazzling sense of purity and restraint. The balance is impeccable.

Wine & Spirits
A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot from Cadence’s estate vineyard, this 2013 is mostly baring its massive shoulders at the moment, with a waxy scent of blueberry and black earth; the flavors still need time to knit, but there is no mistaking its power, its tannic ballast suggesting a long life 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.
