Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Lot 200 2008
Notes: Deep crimson with a matching rim. With enticing aromas of dark chocolate, blueberry, raspberry, and blackberries, this stunning Cab shows what's best from Chalk Hill. A rich mouthfeel underpinned by chocolaty oak pairs with well-proportioned tannins. With impeccable balance and a lingering finish, this big wine is the perfect "go-to" Cab. Cameron Confidential: This is one of a few Chalk Hill Cabs that are sourced from one of the most beautiful vineyards I have ever seen (grapes always seem to grow best in beautiful places). This wine is our 3rd and best vintage to come out of this grower/winery. It's huge—spanning more than 500 acres, several hundred of which are planted to grapes and almost all of which are hillside with little nooks and crannies that create a variety of microclimates. The vineyard is the source of many different grape varietals for something like 20 small, ultra-premium brands (though we control all the Cabernet off the vineyard). The winery that was previously buying the fruit was putting it into its $60 Cabernet.
Zingy cherries and spice on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet, slightly cloying, enjoyable.
Delicious and really coming into its own.
I like this wine. They just launched a referral program- so this will give you $10 off your first purchase. http://chwine.tellapal.com/a/clk/bMrYL
