Often compared to his brother, Jason Woodbridge of 100 point all-star Hundred Acre, Cameron Woodbridge has really come into his own right as a winemaker. Vinous said Cameron's wines "have a distinct personality all their own." Consistently rated at the top of the charts and a high ranking Top 100 member (Wine Spectrum), it's no wonder these wines are highly sought after.
This first vintage of Northern Gale is a survivor and almost didn’t happen. Unfortunately half the vintage didn’t happen when it was lost the following year in the earthquake of 2014. But half survived!!
About the wine
Looking for a big, unapologetic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon? Look no further. Cameron has crafted this beauty and she's ready to drink. Pushing the limits of structure and fruit powerhouse, Stormy Weather's Northern Gale Cabernet Sauvignon is not to overlooked. The rich complexity of the palate is Cameron's calling card.
The production may be small (less than 300 cases) but the palate is anything but. This gem is drinking incredibly well now yet is easily capable to hide away in the cellar for while.
Winemaker's tasting notes:
"Rich aromas of blackberry jam with hints of menthol and aged pipe tobacco. The flavors are rich with ripe fruit – blackberries, cherries, currants – with hints of violets, anise and fresh cut cedar. The finish is long with a slight minerality that accentuates the brightness of this jammy fruit bomb."
