Winemaker Notes

The character of these 54-year-old vines will not be deterred. Clinging to the hillside terraces high in the hills of Sonoma, the wild mountain personality and regal nature beg your attention. Concentrated and brooding in the glass, the wine is, yet, inviting and soft with a wild perfume of lavender, violets, and graphite. The dark fruit is emboldened by the fine, chalky tannins and the persistent mineral finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Montecillo aged 20 months in barrel. It has a medium to deep ruby color and classic nose of cedar, black and red currants, blackcurrant bud, warm chocolate and pencil shavings with hints of red cherries, iron and beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, lush and classically styled in the mouth, it has very ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to lift that lush fruit, finishing long. Lovely! 125 cases produced.

Camino Cellars, California
The word Camino is translated into road or journey. And it’s the journey of Tadeo Borchardt that has brought him to the creation of Camino Cellars. Tadeo found his appreciation for wine while working in several restaurants in the Scottsdale, AZ area. While his appreciation continued, Tadeo followed a path of education and spent a few years as an elementary school teacher in Tucson. In 2002 his dream of working in the wine industry came true and he moved to Sonoma County to take a position in the cellars of Copain. After a stint at Copain, Tadeo headed down under to continue his education in the cellars of Craggy Range in New Zealand. In 2004 he then returned to California to take a position at Neyers Vineyards working alongside head winemaker Ehren Jordan. Upon Ehren’s departure, Tadeo took over the head winemaking responsibilities where he remains today. In 2013 the San Francisco Chronicle Named Tadeo as one of their “Winemaker’s to Watch”. Fast forward to today and the launch of Camino Cellars! This is the first solo project for Tadeo and one that is sure to cause significant buzz. There are two vineyard sources that are at the core of Camino Cellars – Soberanes Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands for Chardonnay, and Montecillo Vineyard in Sonoma County for Cabernet Sauvignon. The Soberanes Vineyard is owned and farmed by the legendary Pisoni and Franscioni families. Nestled just on the other side of the Monterey Bay along the foundation of the Santa Lucia Mountains, the Chardonnay vines are grown in the granitic rock and soil of the Highlands. Exposed to the refreshing marine influence, the heritage selection of Chardonnay (Wente, Hyde, Calera and Mount Eden) keep yields low and provide concentrated wine while maintaining a juicy, crisp freshness. The Montecillo Vineyard was planted in 1964 on the terraced, volcanic, iron rich soils high on the Mayacamas Mountain range. Owned by the Lee family who have a long and rich history in the California wine industry and founded Kenwood Winery in 1970. The vineyard has been carefully watched over for 40+ years by Chuy Ordaz. Camino shares this site with the likes of Bedrock, Turley and Arnot Roberts.

Covering the western slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, facing the city of Sonoma, Moon Mountain District is one of Sonoma’s newest sub-appellations. Here the well-drained, red volcanic and ash soils produce hauntingly intense red wines, mainly from Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varieties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
