    Meet the Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon Lava Block 2021, a wine crafted by the talented winemaker Mark Herold, with insights from the consulting winemaker when available, at Kamen Estate Wines. This Kamen wine originates from a unique parcel known as the Lava Block, a name derived from its volcanic past. The soil here isn’t typical; it’s composed of large chunks of lava left behind by ancient eruptions, creating a foundation that imbues the grapes with distinct characteristics.

    The winery’s location in the southern Mayacamas mountain range, within the Moon Mountain District Sonoma County AVA, benefits from nearly perfect exposures and slopes ensuring excellent drainage. This, combined with the certified organic farming practices, contributed to a wine that reflects the essence of its terroir.

    In 2021, despite the ongoing drought in California, Kamen Vineyards managed to nurture their Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to perfect ripeness. The season avoided major heat spikes, allowing for slow and even maturation. This care is evident in the wine’s depth of flavor, balanced acidity, and structured tannins. The Kamen Lava Block’s unique conditions, coupled with the meticulous winegrowing practices, culminated in a production of 550 cases of this exquisite wine.

    Upon the first encounter, the Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon Lava Block 2021 dazzles with a kaleidoscope of aromas. Notes of black cherry, currant, raspberry, and intense violet leap from the glass, mingling with intriguing hints of crushed rock, apricot, and pencil lead. This aromatic complexity is further enriched by layers of lavender, black cardamom, and new suede, adding a savory depth that beckons for a taste.

    On the palate, this wine does not disappoint. It’s brimming with the lush flavors of black and purple fruits, underscored by the wine’s hallmark minerality that zips across the tongue. The flavors are rich and opulent, balanced by mouth-watering acidity and fine tannins that promise a sophisticated and complex experience. The wine unfolds seamlessly, hinting at an elegance and complexity that are just beginning to reveal themselves. It’s a wine that not only captures the imagination but also promises a journey through its evolving layers over time.

    The Kamen Estate Lava Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 has not gone unnoticed by wine critics, receiving a glowing 96 points from Vinous. Described as a potent and explosive wine, its intense mineral-rich profile is highlighted, with flavors of crushed rocks, graphite, chocolate, lavender, incense, and crème de cassis racing across the palate. This vivid description underscores the wine’s dynamic character, supported by salivating acids and well-balanced, substantial tannins.

    This acclaim serves as a testament to the wine’s exceptional quality and the unique terroir of the Kamen vineyards. It reflects the careful crafting by the winemaker, Mark Herold, and the dedicated team at Kamen Estate Wines, whose efforts have produced a wine that is not only a pleasure to taste but also a rich sensory experience.

    The Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon Lava Block is a remarkable representation of what Kamen Estate Wines and the Moon Mountain District can offer. Its production, rooted in the principles of organic farming and respect for the land, culminates in a wine that is a true joy to explore, promising a memorable journey for every palate. Whether you’re a seasoned connoisseur or new to the world of wine, this Cabernet Sauvignon invites you to experience the rich tapestry of flavors and aromas that only Kamen Sonoma and the unique Lava Block can provide.

      Mark Herold, the winemaker, has outdone himself with this Kamen cabernet. It’s a symphony of flavors – black cherry, plum, and a hint of tobacco. Pairs well with beef!

    "The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Lava Black is a potent, explosive wine. Rocky soils yield a potent, intensely mineral-drenched Cabernet Sauvignon. Crushed rocks, graphite, chocolate, lavender, incense and crème de cassis all race across the palate, supported by salivating acids and big yet well-balanced tannins."
