Another fantastic find from NakedWines.com, the Camille Benitah Terre de Feu Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards near the dormant Mount Konocti volcano (I’m assuming that’s where the Terre de Feu “Land of Fire” name comes from) in Lake County, California. The wine is aged in toasted French oak.
Sample submitted for review. This post includes affiliate links. The Camille Benitah Terre de Feu Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon has an SRP of $29.99 and is available to NakedWines.com Angels for just $14.99.
Thanks to NakedWines.com and the Angels I can craft wines without compromising high-quality and integrity.
You deserve access to luxury wines with no snobbery required. I’m so pleased to offer them to you.
Lake County grows uniquely spicy and fruity Cabernet with flavors like ripe strawberry and a pinch of pepper. It is polished, well-balanced and juicy. Take a sip — you’ll see how the finish lingers elegantly.
Today we’re back with another selection from NakedWines.com. One of the things that we love about this club is that much like the Kirkland Signature wines from Costco, Naked Wines is often able to recruit star winemakers to craft bottles just for them. Then by cutting out all the middle-men, markups and marketing members are able to snag great deals on wines that would normally retail for much more. Such is the case with today’s excellent Cab from winemaker Camille Benitah.
The 2017 Camille Benitah Terre de Feu Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a pleasing aroma of bright blackberry, blueberry and touches of vanilla and spice. Taking a sip reveals a wonderfully smooth mouthfeel along with plenty of dark, juicy berry fruit and excellently integrated spice in this balanced, structured wine. Hints of mint, cola, licorice, cedar, chocolate and more unfold as it has time to breathe in the glass. Soft tannins lead into the dry, long, pleasing finish. This is a lovely expression of Cab that balances the fruit and oak fabulously.
