Camp 4 Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

We’re very sad this is among the last of Kitá Wines on the market… Yet we’re also very grateful to still have a couple of bottles to sip and savor over time.

Kitá Wines was situated in Santa Ynez Valley AVA, within the broader Santa Barbara County of the Central Coast of California, where conditions can range from cool and foggy to warm and dry, depending on your proximity to the coast.

The winery was founded in 2010 by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians with renowned Winemaker Tara Gomez (a Chumash descendant) at the helm of day-to-day operations. Kitá Wines closed in April of 2022, leaving an indelible mark on the wine industry with a lasting (and award-winning) reputation for impeccable quality and deliciousness.

This wine is the 2014 Kitá Wines “Kalaš” red blend, comprised of 48% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot, with 13.5% ABV.

It had a medium garnet hue and vibrant notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, plum, violets, green bell pepper, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, leather, tobacco, and graphite.

Camp 4 Vineyard Spe'y Grenache Blend 2013

Each of the three sisters plays a role and behaves in the backseat of this family vacation. As long as you don’t forget about the dog tied to the bumper, this fruit forward medley will tantalize. — 5 years ago

Camp 4 Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

2014. Oh, there's good stuff here. Perky, juicy red fruit, inky black fruit with impressive concentration. A poised and friendly mouthfeel, combined with mouthwatering acid and tannins sift and fine tell us to put some of these down for a few years or more. Depth. Polish. But more character than surface prettiness. — 7 years ago
