Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Lot 100 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: The wine is almost pitch black with a red rim. Classically beautiful notes of cassis, raspberry, and blackberry in an intense nose are echoed on the palate. Beautifully integrated oak and chewy fine tannins mingle with the aforementioned fruit flavors to create a rich and powerful cuvee. Structurally dense, this wine benefits from a good hour or so in the decanter and has excellent ageing potential. Cameron Confidential: In early 2008 we informed one of our best wine brokers that we had a special project coming up, were looking for something special and were willing to pay to get it. After many months of searching and much turned down product, a Stags Leap producer said they would be willing to put together a blend for us. Months later, we arrived at the Stags Leap Cabernet final blend and were ready to bottle it up when winemaker David said he could take it one step further if we could just wait a bit longer. We figured we had come this far...with the addition of two more wines, another cabernet and a splash or petite verdot, this wine really took off.

Better grab this one while you can. For $17.99 at Costco, this Stag Leap District Cab is phenomenal for the price. Full bodied and ready to drink even though it is 2006, perfect tannins, long finish. Decant for one hour to really open it up. This is premium Napa wine worth $100/bottle. It is yummy. I'm going to buy a case for the holidays which are just around the corner. Sip by itself or wonderful with grilled meats.
