Where oh where is 2004 Camille?

I’ve blogged a few times about how much we love Nicholas Cole Cellars 2004 Camille. So far we’ve only tasted it at events. And now we’re trying to buy a bottle or two. 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.)

After Taste Washington Media Day, I quoted the tasting notes for 2004 Camille, which blends 64% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon. “The 2004 Camille oozes with decadence.  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.  Intense, dark color, with a complex structure embracing velvety tannins leads to a long caressing finish.  One of our most sophisticated wines to date, your palate will desire more of this silky, sensuous Bordeaux style wine.”

A few weeks later, at Washington Wine Highway, 2004 Camille topped the list of our favorite pours.

Please let me know if you’ve seen it at a Seattle-area wine shop!

  1. The ’04 Camille is available by pre-order at Vino Bello for $50/btl. For whatever reason, Nicholas Cole Cellars has chosen to drastically increase the price point which is probably why you don’t see it anymore. Thanks for asking, Michele
