GOLD MEDAL- Critics Challenge Intl Wine Competition

This is the second competition that I entered this year and the second Gold Medal which is always exciting. I recently bottled this wine so it will only get better with a few more months of aging.

2006 Christopher Cameron Vineyards
:: Cabernet Sauvignon ::
Lambert Bridge Vineyard
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County

80% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot 5% Petite Sirah

Aged 28 months in French and American oak barrels.

145 Cases Produced

In our opinion this is the best vintage of Cab that we have seen come out of Dry Creek in the last decade. This wine just has it all- body, depth, fruit, and color! There is tons of ripe marashino cherry, blueberry,and a touch of anise.
