Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 97 Points
eRobertParker.com #219 Jun 2015 Jeb Dunnuck 97 Drink: 2018 - 2032 $100-$119 (75) A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot, the 2012 Camaspelo is more refined and elegant than the Lovers release, showing a seamless, elegant profile to go with lots of dark fruits, savory herbs, graphite and hints of flowers. While the nose is terrific, the palate is where this really shines and it's full-bodied, concentrated and ultra-pure, with lots of fine tannin that keep the finish going. It should be at it's best from 2018-2032 . As I've said numerous times, Christophe Baron and assistant winemaker Elizabeth Bourcier produce some of the most singular and impressive wines out there. Looking at the 2012s, these were slightly more streamlined and linear than I remembered from barrel, yet are still incredible wines that show the quality of the vintage. The 2013s follow suit and are lively, fresh and focused wines. I think the style here has shifted slightly, and while I miss some of the exuberant flesh and concentration of prior vintages, these new releases have beautiful purity and elegance, I'm just not sure they're better wines. Other developments here include the completion of a new winery that's located just behind the old studio. Made in a modern, clean and functional style, it's a beautiful building and count yourself lucky if you're able to finagle a tour. In addition to these Cayuse releases, don't miss the No Girls (made by Bourcier) and Rata releases which are also included in this report.
