Cam Confidential
Lot 250 comes to us from one of Napa's premiere Cabernet producers with prices in the $50 to $200/bottle range. Like Lot 150, Lot 250 is born of an oversupply. For 150 it was mostly 2005 and 2006 barrel aged reds but for Lot 250 it's all Napa County components from one one of Napa's most revered wineries and the bountiful 2009 Harvest. What we have here in the bottle are, to be quite frank, wines that didn't make the cut for their high-end programs and have trickled their way down to us. We bought the base Meritage blend last fall for a great price and then polished out the blend before racking it back into barrels for more aging. The finished wine is a dynamite deal – Napa Valley Meritage from some seriously pedigreed producer for a song.
