Cam Confidential

Lot 299 2007 Reserve Minervois Syrah we refer to around the office as the “lovely monster”. It's a gorgeous wine from 80 year-old-vines grown on a 400M peak in the heart of the Minervois and whereas the Lot 298 sees American oak, Lot 299 Reserve sees 80% new French oak. Tremendous bottle of wine here folks and a tremendous value to boot at $18.

I found an overlooked bottle of this wine in my cellar. Opened it tonight, fantastic! Isn't it about time you sent Cameron back to France and Itialy? As in this lot and lots 272 and 274? Cheers!

Drank this last night and we all enjoyed the deep rich flavors. It was great and got better as the evening went on. Intense flavors that worked and great finish! Definite recommendation.

Not sure why this got a bad review. We opened this up to kick off a Girls Night and it was a hit. I tend to gravitate towards bold cabs, so this was a nice alternative that fit the bill. I noticed that the cork bared the Abbottts label, who also produced another favorite of ours, Lot 370. Crossing my fingers this stays in stock long enough to buy more next month.

The first thing you can't fail to notice is the heady bouquet. Nothing Conservative about this one. A fabulous aroma and taste one can truly smack one's lips lips over. Delectable!

I love dark, jammy Syrahs and this one doesn't dissapoint! If you like fuller bodied wines with lots of fruit, this is your wine.

I often enjoy a big, full-bodied California red, with lots of fruit balanced with bracing tanins, and a mouth feel ranging from "puckering" to "silky". So I was looking forwartd to this "BIG RED". Unfortunately, I found it to be a "Fruit Bomb". It's big. It's bold. But I can't describe any natural "fruit". It tastes like a scientest concocted it in a factory - NOT like anything Mother Nature grew. There's no balance, no tanins, no silk, no pucker, nothing that really even tastes like wine. Just heavy and BIG. I've had 30-40 other Cameron Hughes wines, and I'd rate them all from a 3 (average) to a 5 (awesome). This is the only real dud I've had. I tried it with food, without food, decanted. It just went from Big-and-ugly to Big-and-ugly-and-stale...Chris.
