Cameron Hughes Red Blend Alexander Valley Lot 139 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Dark red with a violet hue. Aromas of cherries and chocolate occupy the nose. This medium- to full-bodied wine presents ripe cherries on the palate with a velvety mouthfeel. Hints of mint on the mid-palate are underpinned by dark chocolate and oak. Supple and polished throughout, this wine finishes smooth as silk with ultra-fine tannins. Cameron Confidential: In the summer of 2008, we were invited to visit one of the facilities in a recently formed marketing group for several wineries in the Napa/Sonoma area. There we were shown about 10 wines—suffice it to say we bought everything they put in front of us, ranging from Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay all the way to Atlas Peak Cabernet and this Alexander Valley Meritage. EVERYTHING we bought was finished bottling-blend, simply excess wines above and beyond where they saw their sales projections, and ALL were ready to go right into the bottle. And go into the bottle they did.

With an obsession for quality and innovation, Cameron Hughes Wine, founded by Cameron Hughes and partner Jessica Kogan, is dedicated to building a reputation for delivering the best domestic and international wine values in the marketplace today. Our focus is on buying at the high-end, small available 'Lots' of super premium wine. Because not all wine at the high-end is bottled, we rescue those 'Lots' do some stylistic blending and get it to you at a great price. Our company produces and markets wine under Cameron Hughes Lot Series, Flying Winemaker, Hughes-Wellman, RockRidge, and Evergreen. We do not own vineyards or ferment wine. Our business model is built around what we call in the industry the “spot” market for super/ultra premium bulk wines. We use our own palates as guides to deliver delicious, super premium wine that is easily accessible price and style-wise. Read less
