Hughes Wellman 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Our flagship Napa Valley Cabernet. Double Gold Medal, SF Chronicle Wine Competition 2013
$55
Our 2010 flagship wine is sublime, combining a powerful structure and intense character in a marvelous, harmonious package. Color and extraction are spot on, with tremendous purity and perfectly ripe fruit. I can’t stress enough how pure and complex this wine is, combining the best of Bordeaux (cooler climate structure and complexity) and Napa Valley (gorgeous fruit). It’s all here. Aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry are underpinned with dollops of blueberry fruit, dark chocolate/espresso bean, and oaky mocha bass notes. This will cellar for another 15+ years, but I think it’s best to drink over the next 5-10 years.

Style: Full, Bold

Flavors: Blackberry, Blueberry, Espresso, Mocha

Cam Confidential
This is a no-expense-spared, meticulously crafted Cabernet that we oversee every step of the way. Our goal with this series is to showcase our own winemaking efforts, and to demonstrate that we're capable of crafting wine that rivals the best that Napa Valley has to offer. Sourced from Stagecoach Vineyard (one of Napa's iconic vineyards that is also source to some of the biggest names in California wine) and finished with a small custom bottling run, each individual bottle is marked with its unique production number - a nice touch for those of you out there who are into collectible wines.
