2018 Camp Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County
Camp Wines were created by the Hobo Wine Co. in 2011 to showcase the quality and value of Sonoma County wine. We work with top growers and vineyard managers in very high quality and responsibly farmed, though lesser known, vineyards throughout Sonoma County to produce delicious, approachable, and affordable wines.
Like Hobo, the Camp wines employ native yeasts and malolactic bacterias for the primary and secondary fermentations without the use of commercial fermentation aids or additives. The wines are aged in real oak barrels and/or stainless steel tanks vs. alternatives or flavoring agents.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Trieb (organic) and Lloyd (sustainable) Vineyards in Alexander Valley, the Prior (organic), Shamwary (certified organic), and Morrison (certified organic) Vineyards in Sonoma Valley, and Puma Springs (certfied organic and biodynamic) in Dry Creek Valley, 12% Merlot from the Morrison (certified organic) Vineyard in Sonoma Valley, and 2% Malbec from J Rickards Vineyard (sustainable) in Alexander Valley. All lots were fermented in stainless steel with a minimal 1-2 punchdowns or pumpovers per day and aged 9 months in neutral French oak barrels.
