2008 Cayuse Camaspelo

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Friday, May 13, 2011 - The nose of this wine had blackberry and plum aromas with notes of spicy peppers and the Funk. The palate had very nice dark fruit flavors with some olive and spice notes. It was great to get an early look at the 08 in bottle after not really enjoying the barrel sample of the 09 Camaspelo at the Private Release weekend. I enjoyed the 08 much more. Of course, it also helped that we tasted this next to a whole bunch of Italian wines, and were really in the mood for something with more fruit as we neared the end of the evening. Cayuse to the rescue! This was the perfect bottle at that point. Plenty of complexity plus the fruit we all wanted.
