Wine Details

Opens up with densely packed aromatics of red plum skins and mocha notes that give way to powdery florals, pink peppercorns and black currant, with hints of crushed rock and dried herb. Seamless on the palate, the wine is lavishly constructed, with earthy minerality infused with plush tannins. Definitely worth a good hour or two in the decanter.

Cam Confidential

No expense was spared with this wine: sourced from Stagecoach Vineyard, the wine spent over 24 months in new oak as we sought to unwind its tightly packed structure. The result is a lovely Syrah that delivers now and will continue to age for another decade. This is not overblown rocket fuel but rather a cooler climate example (14.2% abv), combining Northern Rhone with California Mountain Grown.

Cam recommended letting this wine rest a year or two. Just pulled the cork on the first of my six bottles of Lot 423. It's a very nice Syrah. Dark fruit, tannins are integrated, very nicely balanced, apparent oak. The finish does not go on and on, but this is a very nice wine at an excellent price. Another winner from CH Wines!

Lot 423 has lovely dark and red fruit notes with chocolate and spice. Great balance, has a nice punch off the bat but finishes very smooth. Excellent wine, I wish I could get more!

I'm not always a fan of Syrah, but this was a full flavored, earthy, complex wine that is well worth the price.

Syrah is one of my favorites these days. And not readily available on Cam Hughes. So this is a great value red. Full bodied with a rich finish

My wife and I were pleasantly impressed by this Syrah. Full bodied and bold with a long, rich finish. Excellent paired with some of our favorite recipes or enjoyed all alone. An excellent value.

This was a great bold syrah,from the fragrance to the last taste. We ordered when on sale and bought 6 bottles. I wish we would have gotten more! It was a perfect compliment to our beef stew dinner, and just as good alone.

A good Syrah for the price. It was missing a little something that I couldn't quite put my taste bids on. If it were available, I'd buy more.

Love this one. So remeniscient of the 2011 St. Joseph--uncanny. The nose much like a richer style Pinot, with similar body and color. It's got that great, unique almost gamey quality, but pure and fruity, with a long, dry, rich finish. There are plenty of good wines out there for this price, but this is a winner, hands down. Very drinkable any day, but a bit more. Well worth the price!

Very full bodied New World style Syrah with rich red fruit, vanilla, structure, length. I have ordered this over and over and will until it is gone. If you like Syrah or Rhone wines, you will enjoy this wine.

After a couple of months rest, having endured coast to coast shipping I opened the first bottle tonight. Chilled to 48 degrees. First taste good but let's give it a little time. 20 minutes later this is getting seriously good. A little more before I put it away to finish tomorrow, one word. Delicious.
