Cameron Hughes Pinot Noir Carneros Lot 110 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Deep cherry red center with matching rim; Aromas of strawberry and raspberry compote, rich and jammy on the nose. The mid-pallet is elegant and well-developed with rich fruit and nice complexity. In the more full-throttle California style, this dense pinot is underscored with smoke and cherries, leading to a long finish of well-integrated tannins and lingering strawberry jam. Cameron Confidential: This wine is one of the fatter styles of Pinot that we have done. Relative to our lot 110 Carneros Pinot Noir, Lot 142 is the fuller style Pinot Noir from Carneros. It actually contains some Pinot from the renowned Carneros Pinot Noir Producer, Hudson Vineyards. It’s been in the bottle for just about 5 months now, so it’s just starting to show; it’s just a baby right now. If Lot 110 was too light of a style for you, and you dig a fatter Pinot, you’ll love this wine.

A touch of vanilla and a touch of wood float atop the cola and smoke tinged warm black cherry fruit that gains lovely notes of strawberry tops and grassy herbs with air. This is smooth, with soft, integrated, ripe tannins and good acid keeping this from lying too fat across the palate. There’s a lot of fruit here, very red and very raspberry toned with a nice spice on the palate. An easy drinking style, yet one with good length and a nice light green spice tone on the finale that remind me again of strawberry tops. 88pts

Another great pinot for the price point. Cameron Hughes sources the top fruit from Los Carneros on this one. For $15 bucks, this a Gold Medal Winner (Critics Challenge) is a cross between California and Burgundy. Shows lots of fruit, smooth tannins, drink now or hold for a couple of years. Pair with risotto with porcini mushrooms.

Musty mothball nose, however, the wine itself is very very nice. Silky mouthfeel with soft sweet tannins knit well with the delicate raspberry flavors. Didnt stand up to spicy chilli con carne (not really a pairing I'd recommend, I just happened to open the wine at the end of an unrelated meal).

This is a classic CA Pinot, and for $15, you can't beat it! This is a perfect example of why i have learned to trust Cameron Hughes with wine. Great ruby color, nose was almost nondescript, nothing much, but the smooth mouth feel and the whopping fruit and very balanced acidity make up for it. I'm ordering a case.

After some decanting, the nose came through. Nice weight. The strawberry fruit was quite noticeable. Appears it can definitely age and improve. I'd purchase again.
