Initially, the fruit grown at Kamen Estate was sold to Sonoma wineries, but 1996, a fire tore through the property destroying half of the vines along with the owners home. A major replanting began as soon as the ground cooled, and new selections of Cabernet clones were chosen, and different rootstocks were used. The first release of Kamen Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was in 1999. The story of this vineyard is truly a real life Phoenix rising from the ashes.
