Cameron Hughes Priorat Lot 49 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

his wine is a blend of traditional and modern varieties aged in older American and French oak barrels and bottle aged before release. The resulting wine is an intense bracken fruit style with prominent notes of ripe blackberries and backed blueberries. It is almost like the slate and mineral aromas transport you to Priorat and the low yielding vines have ensured chewy flavors on the palate with concentrated fruit slowly making way to velvet tannins derived both from the berry and the barrel. The warmth of the wine persists and makes for a great pairing for a traditional food like oven baked goat or lamb. Also, due to the minimalist handling of the wine, an hour or so of decanting prior to serving will benefit.

This wine is still drinking beautifully, and I'm glad to have a few more bottles to let them age a bit. very complex wine and unfolds elegantly over several hours.

Tasted at the 2008 Wine 2.0 event at Crushpad: A Rich, meaty grenache blend. Still very tannic - needs time to open, or 6 months more in the bottle. As always, great value from Cameron Hughes.

Updated review. I didn't like the first bottle from earlier this year. Drinking now and find it very tasty.

Complex and deep in unique taste. Earthiness. After the first bottle, I ordered another 18 to cellar for at least five years. I think this will open up beautifully with time. Good now but will be excellent in the future. It is a treat.
