    Winemaker Notes

    Our Cabernet Sauvignon showcases fruit and spice components in a smooth, supple style. Forward aromas and flavors of cherry and berry are enhanced by delicate chocolate, clove and oak complexity leading to a round and elegant mouthfeel.

    Camelot Vineyards, Central Coast, California
    Image of winery
    Camelot embraces California's bountiful viticultural riches: its many world-class winegrowing regions, ranging from the Central Coast, with its alluvial soils and marine-influenced microclimates, to the warm, hilly expanses of the historic Sierra Foothills Gold Country. They carefully research these areas to identify their best grape varieties, then source fruit from outstanding vineyards in each appellation to craft wines that consistently over-deliver on quality.

    To create these outstanding wines, Winemaker Melissa Bates employs state-of-the-art technology blended with old-world artisan winemaking techniques. Camelot's goal is to let the personality of each varietal shine through, with oak used to accent, rather than dominate, the fresh, lively fruit that is Camelot's hallmark.

    "Our duty at Camelot is to reward the good taste of consumers with beautifully made, harmonious wines they can enjoy both with casual meals and elegant feasts."
    -Melissa Bates, Winemaker

    Central Coast

    View all wine

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
