Wine Details

Gorgeous aromas of kirsch liqueur, crushed blue/black berries and graphite are framed with sweet toasty oak. On the palate dense texture and perfectly rich fruit (Rutherford and Oakville) contrasts nicely with the fresh impact of mountain minerality (Atlas Peak). Crushed plum, violets and white flowers vie for attention all supported by ripe, mouth-coating tannins. Superb length and penetrating fruit are focused and intense with tremendous persistence and balance.

Cam Confidential

Lot 400 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines wines from a great high-end producer with legendary vineyard sources in Oakville and Rutherford and wines from our own grapes-to-bottle programs from Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak and the Palisades Vineyard in Calistoga. The result is a stunning wine that combines fruit from some of the best vineyards in Napa Valley to create an uber-cuvee that, for me, is the archtype of great Napa Valley Cabernet. While Lot 400 is certainly a candidate for your cellar, it will be a worthy accompaniment to your table now.

My wife and I are generally Pinot people, so we only buy 3-6 bottles of Cab each year that seem like they will be to our taste, and cellar them for a bit to allow them to mellow. We knew when this went into the decanter that, by the nose and the deep purple color, it was going to be great. We weren't disappointed. As others have said, so very smooth with length in abundance. I'm sure from others' notes that we would have enjoyed this at release, but the extra cellar time really served to mellow this wonderfully.

When we bought our bottles of 400, we bought one bottle and drank the day of at the store. This taste sold us on the additional bottles we bought, the complexity of this wine for the price found us shocked. Why have we been paying much more for wine that frankly isn't as good. We've had 2010 Caymus and Cakebread cabs, none of which we enjoyed as much as this on the first sip. Last night, almost 9 months later we opened bottle two and the wine has changed delightfully, I feel like it lasts even longer on the tongue now. It bursts with fruit and is about as smooth of a cab as you can find. It's going to be hard to wait and enjoy the remaining bottles, track this wine down if you can - you won't be disappointed!

This wine is drinking incredibly well right now. What a difference a year of rest has made. Very full bodied, but smooth.

Blind-tasted this with another couple against a 2008 Shafer One Point Five Cabernet and a $50 French Cabernet (2006)... 400 was unanimous winner. All of us were shocked- huge Shafer fans, couldn't believe our eyes when we removed the bags to see Lot 400 as our choice.
This is a must have if you like big, smooth California Cab.

Very smooth, full-bodied. My favorite of the Lots.

Janet A, Walnut Creek, CA

Elegant, velvety red.

Claire K, Walnut Creek, CA

My kind of red. Not heavy, good with pork, beef, chicken or by itself. Smooth with a clean aftertaste. Yum!

Ross A, Walnut Creek CA

This is a great Cab. Cam says some of his wine would sell for $100+ at the winery and I believe him with this one.

Lucas A., Concord, CA

One of the smoothest cabernets I have ever tasted.

Great drinking wine, not too big, not too thin. It's a very balanced cab.

WineInTheRockies from Denver, CO

Right out of the bottle a bit tight and astringent - gotta admit, I was worried. I decanted for an hour, then back into the bottle as Cam suggests for an overnight rest. What a difference a day makes. Honestly, I'd even give it another hour decant after the overnight rest. It was just beginning to resemble an explosive 4th of July fireworks show when we were finishing the bottle. I experienced electric strawberry currents pulsing through my entire palate. WOW! But do give it a breather - or a cellar a case to watch grow up over the next few years or more. This will definitely improve with age.
