Wine Details

Dark berry and spicy fruit, with leather and savory notes from the Cabernet Franc. Plenty of minerality on the nose and palate, with hints of forest floor, smoky oak and dark chocolate.

Also had similar cork issues as reported in other reviews. Good wine after 3 hours in the decanter.

Love this wine. Too bad it is already gone!

Did not like it....just too tangy and not a pleasing drink. So we opened another Lot. Next day I tried 366 again and it was OK. So, for the remaining 5 bottles I had we opened them early and allowed the wine to calm down and breathe.

A good everyday wine. Not a blow-you-away Bordeaux but very good and an excellent value for the price.

Four bottles opened. All corks dry. Two disintegrated into bottle.
Barely drinkable. One poured down the drain.

I am comfortable in my taste in French wines, but this wasn't right. My three bottles were definitely "off" as the other reviews mention. Too bad as I've enjoyed other St Emilion wines.

I took a chance and ordered 2 cases. It was one of best buys I've made in many a year. I love St. Emilion and have been there a few years ago. It exceeded my expectations. Corks are a bit long and tough to pull out so take your time.
I agree it needs a little breathing and time in bottle. I either decant or use one of those aerators that are a little gimmicky, but do work to put some air in the wine as you pour.
I'm really happy with the wine and will enjoy a bottle from time to time.

Definitely old world style. If you find it "off", then you probably prefer fruit forward CA merlot/blends. But if you are French you are probably gushing over the forest floor and graphite flavors. The reported dry corks might be a sign of questionable storage (hence the $14 price), so maybe not something you want to keep until the recommended 2020. Still, this has more powerful tannins at 5-years old than anything else I've drank this year. So I look forward to seeing how it mellows in a year or two. No question a great Bordeaux value.

We have loved many, many Cameron Hughes wines. This is my least favorite. First smelled off and I thought it had gone bad. Second bottle only a bit better. I still have two, which I will hold and decant and report back if they get better.

I bought four. Have only had one bottle. It was elegant & silky w/ great tannins.
