Rich, brooding, swirling with dark fruit - no wonder it's called "the storm"

    • She's spent years at boutique cult wineries, crafting $150+ Cabs – and now, Camille's used her connections to buy gorgeous Napa Cab from a luxury producer – and make it for YOU instead.

    • Hand-harvested from premiere hillside vineyards in the heart of Napa, Camille smoothed out this top-shelf red in French Oak barrels for a whopping 20 months.  That's what gives this special vintage its luscious complexity, juicy swirls of dark fruit and silky-smooth texture.

    • ...and to think, without Angels, her dream project would’ve never existed. Camille lost 100% of her grapes to devastating wildfires in 2017 – but your special funding gave her the chance to start again. This limited-edition Napa Cabernet is your well-earned reward!

Aging advice
I think it will evolve for a while. It's ready to enjoy now, and it will change over time and soften with age through 2025.

Serving advice
Open an hour before as it should be pleasant right away!

Local food match
Steak is always the best option. Roasted and stewed meats also flatter the wine (and the wine will flatter the meats as well!) For vegetarians, I recommend tajine and earthy stews.
