Lot 256 Napa Valley Rose 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Vibrant carmine in color with riveting aromas of strawberries, cherry, jolly rancher, and juicy red fruit. The mid-palate is layered in mouthwatering richness. A sumptuous wine with great acidity and crisp finish. Cameron Confidential: We had originally planned on making a Cabernet Rosé from the free run juice (or saignee) of the Hughes Wellman Cabernet program and we did. Then along came the saignee from another high-end ($80+) Napa Cabernet producer and the two blended beautifully. Lot 256 2010 Napa Valley Rosé is made in a dry style and color wise falls somewhere in between a typical Provence Rosé (pale salmon, almost orange in color) and the darker red New World Rosé’s. I would call it wild salmon in color with tints of orange and red. The wine is sourced purely from Cabernet and from very high-end programs. As such it requires a bit of splashing around to open up and has the structure to age beautifully over the next three to four years (maybe longer but I don’t have much of a benchmark for ageing Rosé).

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
