The 2010 Bastille is in many ways closer to the 2007 Bastille, with the Cabernet Sauvignon dominating the blend. The 2010 Bastille, named Cuvée Camille, has elegance, complexity, length and freshness. The palate offers up flavors of lingonberry and red currant fruit, with light and integrated oak spice (subtle vanilla and cinnamon), as well as light minerality.
