Cam Confidential

Lot 257 is quintessential Napa Cabernet from the terrific 2009 vintage. The wine comes to us from a relatively new winery with a lot of money behind it and plans to grow. The facilities are brand new in the last decade and the vineyards are all top notch, boasting properties in Rutherford, Calistoga, and St. Helena. They came to us last Fall and opened up their doors to their cellar as they simply had way more wine than they could sell – their prices start at $60/bottle.

Berry flavor definitely comes through. Tannins suggest it will improve with age, but likely will be long gone by then.

I thought this was a great deal for a Napa Cab under $20. It is super easy to drink, a very low tannin Cab. Granted you get not as much structure as some of the other CH wines, but at $18 it's worth every penny. Not a heavy Rutherford Cab, but if that's what you like then get that wine. This Cab is for the fruit lover.

Picked up a couple of these during their big sale. Serious, serious value.

Dry tannins, a little spice on the finish. Very fruity, chocolatey aromas. Tastes a bit smoky, and finishes a little "hot" (but it is 14.7abv). Definitely a smooth cab on the fruitier side and not heavy.

To say this is "one dimensional" is a gift. I rarely write a review but this time I felt compelled.
This is a $5/bottle at best. Really doesn't deserve to be on the CH roster as so many of their wines do, lot 32 and lot 200 come to mind. Still available at Costco, so beware.
