    July 6, 2020 - This was lovely. There is that distinct cayuse funk (though not over the top here). But definitely a signature style. The blend gives it a bit more structure, the cab providing even a bit of sweetness. It all worked really well together. There were those signature umami flavors that I associate with Cayuse – notes of capscisum, tabasco. This would not be confused with an old world Bdx blend, but also not a Napa one either.

    September 24, 2018 - This is still drinking beautifully. The nose at first was of baked camembert, with some goat cheese (thanks Henry for the descriptors!). On the palate this still has that nice umami taste -- like before, not as much structure as I would expect from a high end Bdx, but drinking quite beautifully. This is perhaps my most favorite Camaspelo so far. Not sure it will improve, but not falling apart yet either.

    December 22, 2017 - Oh yeah. This is fantastic right now. Give it an hour or so in the decanter.

    November 3, 2017 - Different than a Bordeaux (does not seem to have the strong structure I normally associate with Bordeaux). But still delicious. Lovely balance. Strong pull of umami on both the nose and palate. Tight and focused Nose of leather and green pepper and Tabasco. Really smooth in the mouth. Some nice deep flavors of leather currant strips, some nice bright acid and fine grained tannins. There is a pleasant sweetness to this wine. Really fantastic. Can it get better? Maybe. But why wait. (Well I have a few more so I guess I will). But if you only have one left. Go for it. You will not be disappointed
