Lot 178 Los Carneros Syrah 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Rich brick-red with dark center. Redolent of violets, iodine, smoked meats, and a peppery incense laid over notes of blackberry fruit and cocoa. The palate is intensely structured, rich, complex, and fat with blackberry fruit and bacon fat. With great acidity and beautiful structure, this wine finishes strong on the palate, continuing to change through the finish. Cameron Confidential: This wine was formerly known as Havens Wine Cellars Hudson Vineyard Syrah. 90% of the fruit from this wine is sourced from the famous Hudson Vineyard in Carneros and gives the wine an incredibly exotic signature (the rest of the fruit comes from the Havens Estate Vineyard in Oak Knoll). It is quite an adventure but one you are sure to enjoy, especially considering this wine scored 90 and 91 points with Parker in 2004 and 2005, and it sold between $35 and $50. It is simply a screaming deal and ready to drink over the next 7 to 10 years.

Lot 144 Syrah from Los Carneros a great deal at $11 bucks at Costco. High quality juice again chosen by Cam, who has an amazing palate for judging quality and aging ability. He is a master blender. This syrah is another Wine Attic pick - very high quality at recession pricing. Great with steaks, stews, cioppino.
