Lot 44 Rutherford Cabernet 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Beautiful nose of toasty French oak, warm fruit, mocha, and black olive. Medium/full-bodied (hallmark of the 2005 vintage), this wine shows outstanding overall structure and balance and great depth of varietal character. Chocolate, blackberry, tobacco, and espresso flesh out the mid-palate, and the wine finishes smooth with notes of cocoa powder and that classic Rutherford "dust." Cameron Confidential: This is the bottle blend (meaning that it's one finished wine from one producer and the exact same wine as they will bottle that year) from a high-end, conscientious Rutherford producer truly focused on quality. Their bottling frontlines at $45 on their website and has received 90- to 92-point scores for the past 3 vintages from the Wine Spectator. Quite simply one of the best cabs we have ever produced and definitely a steal at $15.

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.
