95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Camerata (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot brought up in 50% new French oak) offers more classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, cedar, and earth. It's another rich, beautifully concentrated, deep wine that has building tannin, notable freshness, and a great finish. As with the Bel Canto, it's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 15+ years.
Ben Smith’s Cadence wines fly too far under the radar and these are classic, singular, age-worthy wines from Washington State. They deserve more attention in the market."
2013 vintage notes
94 points Wine Advocate: "A significantly different blend from the 2012, which was over 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Camerata checks in as 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, which like the Bel Canto spent 23 months in 50% new French oak. Possessing a fabulous bouquet of black currants, toasted spice, licorice and wild herbs, this full-bodied 2013 is concentrated, incredibly elegant and textured, with ripe tannin and a balanced, layered style that will evolve gracefully. It should be at its best from 2020-2033.
2012 vintage notes
95 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant, focused and aristocratic, centering on generous plum, currant, blackberry and floral aromas and flavors that play out against well-modulated, crisp tannins. Has presence and excellent length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2025." 225 cases made.
