Cameron Hughes Zinfandel Sonoma County Lot 114 2006
Editorial Reviews for Cameron Hughes Zinfandel Sonoma County Lot 114
What a lovely nose, really speaking of cool climate California Cabernet with lovely nuanced notes of mint, grapevine, soil and toast accentuating the blueberry tinged cassis fruit. The nutty oak tones gain and fade and are replaced with gentle mineral and bay leaf tones but all in fine balance to the cool crushed cassis fruit. In the mouth this starts off precise and tight, if perhaps a bit youthfully disjointed but with time to breath this gathers itself admirably and offers text-book Oak Knoll character with bright red and black currant fruit that has just the slightest jammy edge, mouth cleansing tannins and acidity that offers excellent lift on the backend leading to the gently earth and spice toned finish. This offers excellent ripeness and a fine silky mouthfeel after several hours in the decanter. Really very fine stuff with a decade or more of positive development ahead of it. 91pts
Dark and earthy straight out of the bottle with eucalyptus top notes and dark cherry fruit wrapped in a subtle shroud of integrated, tobacco tinged, oak spice. Bright and lean on entry with a bit of a hard feel initially. There is a core of cocoa and roast meat tinged red fruits here supported by bright acidity and small yet stiff tannins. This deserves a year or two in bottle to open up though several hours in the decanter works wonders now. The finish is precise and red fruited with lovely inner mouth perfume. This is a stylish and surprisingly elegant Diamond Mountain Cabernet. 91pts
You can still get this wine at Costco or on-line. A great buy at $11 bucks. It is a mid to full bodied blend of Cab, Merlot and a little Carmenere to make this that earthy finish. Great with grilled lamb. This wine is also smooth enough to drink by itself. Drink now or can be aged for 10 years. Buy a case to store.
Nice, smooth, and delicate smokiness and vanilla, with pear fruit. I found it very easy to drink a few glasses.
At first the fruit and cassis were really present on the nose, but they went into hiding for a while until the wine had sat in the glass for about 10 minutes. The wine was pretty tight and tannic, but it seems like this has some really good aging potential.
Tasted at the 2008 Wine 2.0 event at Crushpad: Very powerful inky dark wine. Strong nose of eucalytpus. Leather and cedar in the mouth. Not my style (SA Cabs generally arent). There's a lot here, but it needs a year of age.
Opens with a very fruity nose, nice but instantly worried me that its going to be overextracted. After some time in the glass this died down and it was very nice. Soft tannins, very silky, fruity, but not out of balance.
An astonishing young buck that really presents an excellent QVR. But you're not drinking Cameron just because of the value. This is a truly exceptional wine, maybe a bit soft for some but nice balance of acid and fruit. Honestly I had a hard time finding specific flavors, but if it tastes too much like one thing then that can be a mistake unworthy of balance.
Too much alcohol and tannin without any level of structure. It was hot right from start and just lingered as I searched for something positive from the finish. Nothing here but a nice lesson learned. Possibly the most disappointing CH to date.
