2019 kaamos

Drink­ing Win­dow 2025 — 2033

Dark, earthy, smokey and dis­tinct­ly savory, the 2019 Kaamos makes itself known with a brood­ing blend of scorched earth, under­brush and black cur­rants lift­ed by a sweet mint hint. It’s silky- smooth with medi­um-bod­ied weight and a core of min­er­al-tinged red and black fruits that slow­ly sat­u­rate. Dark choco­late nuances and an invig­o­rat­ing burst of tan­ger­ine add con­trast toward the close. It fin­ish­es long, light­ly struc­tured and pleas­ant­ly chewy with tart wild berries and sage notes. This is a won­der­ful­ly com­plete ren­di­tion of Kaamos, a blend of 64% Petite Sir­ah, 20% Grenache and 16% Mourvèdre. 94+ pts

Finnish for the polar night”. It’s that time of year in Decem­ber and Jan­u­ary when it’s essen­tial­ly dark in Fin­land. An appro­pri­ate name for kaamos, as it is Petite Sir­ah dri­ven and very dark.
