Overview of the Wine
Located in front and around the “Trail House”, as it is lovingly called by family and friends, CAMi Vineyards consists of two acres of Estate vineyards growing one half mile south of Larkmead Lane off the west side of the Silverado Trail. Purchased in 1999, CAMi Vineyards borders Selby Creek and Larkmead Vineyards to the West. This valley floor fruit grows the Three Palms Clone Merlot planted in 1996 on St. George root stock. The CAMi Merlot vineyard produces a concentrated and full-bodied wine.
Dedicated to the life and work of Laurie’s late husband, Tom Shelton. Tom was a steward of the Napa Valley and all of its components, be it the land, the water, the appellations, and especially the relationship wine creates for friends and family.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The 2018 vintage marks the sixth vintage of CAMi Vineyards. A blend of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, our 2018 Red Blend displays impressive aromatics. Notes of fresh flowers, lavender, dried herbs and cocoa powder which lead to crushed raspberries rounding out the aromatics. Sweet red fruit of raspberries follow through on the palate with layers of blueberry adding dimension. Plush blue fruit and leather add complexity on the mid palate. Ample dark fruit and polished tannins complete this elegant wine.
