Cayuse Camaspelo 2020 emerges as a harmonious blend, led by Cabernet Sauvignon with contributions from Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a touch of Tempranillo. Crafted under the watchful eye of winemaker Christophe Baron, this wine captures the essence of refinement and complexity.

International Wine Report’s 96 points capture the wine’s balanced and complex nature. Aromas of black plum, blueberries, tobacco leaf, and hints of scorched earth entice the senses. Flavors of crushed blackberries, fennel seed, brown mushroom, saline, and crushed rock undertones form an intricate tapestry that shines.

Jeb Dunnuck’s 94 points describe the Camaspelo’s charm, with leafy herbs, red and blue fruits, tobacco, cedarwood, and iron notes weaving a captivating narrative. Medium to full-bodied, it boasts fine-grained tannins, a silky mouthfeel, and remarkable length. Approachable now, it’s expected to gracefully age for 15 years.

James Suckling’s 94 points emphasize the wine’s mineral and savory qualities, with crushed rocks, tobacco, iodine, bay leaves, and blackberries on the palate. The wine’s excellent freshness, silkiness, and gentle green-herb undertones make it a compelling blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.

Owen Bargreen’s 95 points celebrate the Camaspelo’s outstanding character. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, it showcases tar, tobacco leaf, black currants, anise, and shades of soy sauce. Salty and stony elements interplay with mouth-watering acidity, coating the palate and promising enjoyment over the coming years.

Cayuse Camaspelo 2020 is a masterpiece that beckons exploration, a wine that harmoniously combines complexity, structure, and finesse, capturing the essence of its origin and the skill of its maker.

Critical Acclaim

IWR 98
International Wine Report
A Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with additional parts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a dash of Tempranillo is aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels. It’s a full-bodied mélange that’s both balanced and complex, with aromas of black plum, blueberries, tobacco leaf, and hints of scorched earth. On the palate, you will find flavors of crushed blackberries, fennel seed, and brown mushroom, along with saline and crushed rock undertones that make it truly shine. Highly recommended.

Leafy herbs, red and blue fruits, tobacco, cedarwood, and iron notes all emerge from the 2020 Camaspelo, another up-front, charming, soft, surprisingly supple red from this team. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has fine grained tannins, a layered, silky mouthfeel, and outstanding length. It's approachable today yet should have 15 years of overall longevity.

Crushed rocks, tobacco, iodine, bay leaves and blackberries here. Mineral and savory, with very fine-grained tannins. Excellent freshness and silkiness, with gentle green-herb undertones. A blend of mostly cabernet sauvignon, with some cabernet franc and merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

The outstanding 2020 Camaspelo is a gorgeous proprietary blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with small parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc with a douse of Tempranillo. This is steady right out of the gate with tar, tobacco leaf, black currents, anise and shades of soy sauce on the palate. The salty and stony elements are really outstanding, as is the mouth-watering acidity that coats the palate. Enjoy now and over the next several years to come.

Christophe Baron

Christophe Baron, a visionary winemaker with roots in Champagne, France, has carved a niche in the Walla Walla Valley, Washington, transforming his passion into a diverse array of exceptional wines. His journey, which began with an intended focus on Oregon's Pinot Noir, took an unexpected turn upon his discovery of the unique, stony terrain in the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA. In 1996, this led to the establishment of Cayuse Vineyards, which he nurtured from a humble 5-acre beginning to an expansive 45-acre estate. Baron’s repertoire at Cayuse is a testament to his versatility and deep understanding of viticulture. He is renowned for crafting wines that vividly express the minerality and earthiness characteristic of the vineyard's basalt cobblestone terroir, echoing the... More Products

Nestled in the southeastern corner of Washington State, with its graceful extension into Oregon, the Walla Walla Valley AVA is an exquisite illustration of how geography and passion merge to define exceptional winemaking regions.

The story of Walla Walla Valley's wine is one of resurrection and innovation. It dates back to the 1850s when early settlers, captivated by the region’s untapped potential, introduced the first vine plantings. These pioneers recognized the area’s promise, but their initial viticulture efforts were... ...Check Region for more information
