Cayuse Vineyards Camaspelo 2016
The 2016 Cayuse Camaspelo is a stunning blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that showcases the power and elegance of Washington State's Walla Walla Valley. The nose is complex and alluring, with aromas of black cherry, cassis, and baking spice mingling with subtle hints of tobacco and leather. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and intense, with flavors of blackberry, plum, and dark chocolate underscored by a backbone of firm tannins and bright acidity. The finish is long and focused, with layers of fruit and spice unfolding over time. A wine of great depth and finesse, the 2016 Camaspelo is a true masterpiece.
The aromas are subdued out of the gate, with notes of earth, tobacco, fresh herb, funk, cassis bud and spice. The palate brings a sense of layering and detail. Sean P. Sullivan
