Wine Details

The aromatics are classic Napa Valley - high-toned and complex, showing cassis and raspberry backed by black olive and bay leaf notes. There is also a pink floral/blossom component here, and plenty of black peppercorns punctuated by fruit compote and plenty of well integrated new French oak. The palate is just unwinding, with a pretty red and black fruit core showing black cherry, hints of eucalyptus, and classic Rutherford dust in a long, savoury finish.

Cam Confidential

We put this wine through elevage in our barrel program for approximately 16 months before bottling in April of 2012. Sourced primarily from Yountville and Rutherford, the final blend is rounded out with some of the best barrels of Merlot we obtained from Haven’s and Petit Verdot from Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak.

This is the kind of wine you buy a case of.

I would say this is a wine that captures the true style of Cameron Hughes wine. This cab has a smooth, silky structure with elegant aromas of cherries and plums. Well balanced mouthfeel with red and black fruit flavors and a hint of spicy oak. Enjoy it now or cellar it for a few years. Drinking beautifully tonight.

Excellent wine

A lot of olive on the nose, with hints of white pepper as well. Love the dark fruit flavors and layers of this wine. It's definitely a little bit leaner and not as fleshy as some of the other cabs I've had, but this is still a total winner.

Mushroom, tobacco, leather, and a lot of olive on the nose, with blackcurrant and earth flavors. Pretty complex wine.
