2010 Cayuse "Camaspelo" Walla Walla Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1120952 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark More edgy and fresh than the Widowmaker, with more up-front acidity, the 2010 Camaspelo offers a classic Bordeaux-styled bouquet of deep back currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings and hints of fresh herbs. Perfumed, complex and elegant, with a full-bodied, detailed and energetic profile on the palate, it is a beautifully balanced 2010 that will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years of ultimate longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Eighty percent Cabernet Sauvignon, the rest Merlot, this outstanding Camaspelo has what the French call mache—impressive grip and texture. Deep and rich, it’s loaded with black cherry, sporting a thick vein of black licorice and a finish laced with mineral and espresso. Dark, smoky, earthy, herbal and tannic, it requires many hours to fully open up. *Cellar Selection* (PG) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Smooth and lithe, this sinuous style lets the red berry, cherry and delicately herbal flavors slide effortlessly over the refined tannins and onto the long and expressive finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. (HS) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

92 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright, deep red. Pungent plum, redcurrant, strawberry and cranberry fruit aromas are lifted by pepper, mint and spices. Tightly wound and highly perfumed, with sweet red berry and spice flavors complemented by a cocoa powder element. Finishes firm and very long, with noteworthy aromatic precision. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2013)
