Lot 244 is comprised of a "Field Blend" which is grapes grown together in the vineyard as opposed to being grown separately and blended after harvest. This wine combines Zinfandel/Petite Sirah/Syrah/Carignane to form a wonderfully smoky nose interwoven with blueberry, raspberry, and kirsch. The palate is deeply concentrated with silky tannins and a rich, multi-faceted juicy finish.

North Coast brands are being bought, sold, and traded lately as vintners struggle to stay ahead of their obligations. The wines we sourced from this deal make up a considerable part of the repositioning of a particular ultra-premium Zinfandel and Zin-based blend producer that was sold a year or so ago. As part of the deal one of the brands was discontinued altogether and we purchased all of those wines and others from the flagship brand as they sought to maintain the over $35/bottle price point by reducing inventory. This is a classic deal for Cameron Hughes Wine but it’s also a one-time deal as they severely cut back the 2010 contracts so grab what you can of these incredible values.
