I’ve blogged a few times about how much we love Nicholas Cole Cellars 2004 Camille. So far we’veÂ onlyÂ tasted it at events. And nowÂ we’re trying to buy a bottle or two.Â Does anybody know where 2004 Camille can be found in the Seattle area? (Nicholas Cole’s Web site is being relaunched, so I can’t check there.)
AfterÂ Taste Washington Media Day, IÂ quoted the tasting notes forÂ 2004 Camille, which blends 64% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon. â€œThe 2004 Camille oozes with decadence.Â This wine, with layer upon layer of balanced fruit and spicy oak blended with aromas of dark chocolate, fresh ground espresso and a hint of sweet pipe tobacco, will entice your senses.Â Intense, dark color, with a complex structure embracing velvety tannins leads to a long caressing finish.Â One of our most sophisticated wines to date, your palate will desire more of this silky, sensuous Bordeaux style wine.â€
A few weeks later, at Washington Wine Highway,Â 2004 CamilleÂ topped the list of our favorite pours.
Please let me know if you’ve seen it at a Seattle-area wine shop!
