Wholly darker than it's Cabernet-centric cousin Tapteil, Camerata is deep, brooding, and intensely perfumed. Black cherries, plums and raspberries lurk along with minerals and spice. The most enjoyable part of the palate is the rich, glycerin mouth feel playing off of perfect acidity. Tannins are long, fine and very present even with the caressing mid-palate texture.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93
Ben’s Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend from his estate vineyard, the 2010 Camerata Cara Mia Vineyard, checks in at 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and then equal parts Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Perfumed and complex aromatically, with plenty of blackberry, blueberry, violets and resinous herb qualities on the nose, it is beautifully constructed on the palate with a layered, rich texture, juicy acidity and ripe tannin that emerges on the finish. While the most structured and firm of Ben’s 2010s, it still dishes out plenty of pleasure even now. Enjoy bottles over the coming decade. Drink now-2024.
