The 2012 vintage was a grape grower’s dream season. Perfectly timed spring rains followed by moderate summertime temperatures created perfect growing conditions. There were no debilitating variations in weather during harvest. Because of consistent temperatures, the fruit ripened evenly producing great ripe fruit flavors and freshness. These were the ultimate conditions for growing extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon. Each hand harvested block of Kamen Estate Cabernet is fermented and barreled as an individual lot. In exceptional vintages, Kashmir cuvee is made from the thoughtful blending of our top lots producing a unique reserve wine that is aromatic, concentrated and developed.
