Not quite as good as the '08, but still pretty good.
I was underwhelmed at first, but then we gave this wine some breathing time and it finally opened up after an hour decant. Turned out to be a very nice wine, even more so at this price point. I am not disappointed in this wine selection. It reminds me very much of the wine we drank in St. Emilion last Fall.
Great value Bordeaux
Needs to be decanted to get the best from the wine. Good structure and still has some solid tannins. Should have bought more!
I was underwhelmed
I found this wine while okay, it was kind of thin. Maybe it's just because Cam has spoiled us with his Merlot Cab blends. I am no expert on Bordeux wines but I was a little disappointed.
Not A Good Wine
I have bought wine for years from Cameron Hughes, and trusted the company's description of quality and value. However, for the first time, I bought a case of something that is clearly not great wine.
I wish I had bought more of this before it was gone. It needs to open up quite a bit before drinking, but once it breaths, it is amazing. Well worth the $20 price tag. Not what I expected for 75% Merlot. Tastes a lot more complex than that, but very smooth.
