Camp 4 Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Kitá, red blend, Santa Ynez Valley, CA, Vintage 2014, ABV 13.5%. The blend is comprised of 48% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot. @kitawines

👁 It had a beautiful purple hue and vibrant notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, plum, violets, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, leather, and tobacco. 👃 👄

I loved learning about the background on this wine and winemaker Tara Gomez, who studied enology with financial help from her tribe, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. 💕 Tara has worked with iconic figures in the California wine world — such as Fess Parker and J. Lohr— and has traveled the world, honing her own unique style of winemaking that blends the best of old world and new world techniques. 👏👏👏 @tgomez805

This red blend is made of grapes grown on the Camp 4 Vineyard, purchased by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians in 2010, when Tara was hired as head winemaker. 🍇🍇 The land was previously cultivated by Fess Parker, who had an influence on Tara’s budding career while interning at Fess Parker Winery during her enology studies.

The word "Kitá" means "Our Valley Oak" in the Santa Ynez Chumash native language of Samala. The wine is speaks to “place” and respect for the land from which it is cultivated. 🌎 🌳 Yields and production are kept small to promote sustainable growing practices and the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified with minimal intervention.

Camp 4 Vineyard Grenache Rosé 2019

This is outstanding. I usually don’t go for a few year old domestic rose, but this is hitting its stride. Perfume of white flowers, strawberries, grapefruit, something green, great acidity, but very well balanced. Love it! — 7 months 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. — 5 years ago
