Wine Details

Lot 447 has a wonderfully smoky nose interwoven with blueberry, raspberry, and kirsch.  The palate is deeply concentrated with silky tannins and a rich, multi-faceted juicy finish that will continue to evolve with some time in the bottle.  Fantastic.

Cam Confidential

Lot 447 2012 Lake County Red Blend is primarily sourced from one of the best vineyards in the Lake County area, Madder Lake Vineyard. Located on a seriously steep and rocky hillside at 2,250 foot elevation, these head-pruned Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah vines produce fantastically dense fruit that normally sells in for $30-$40 per bottle.

I take advantage of the CH sales to get some of the more pricey releases which have never disappointed me. In between, I look for a Cam review of a lesser Lot with associated awards that appeals and this is one of those. I guess the Syrah and Petite Sirah grapes are two of my favourties together with Cabernet. I will be looking out for similar offerings in weeks to come.

Too bad Lot 477 is now sold out, it was a real value. A medium bodied wine with rich fruit and soft tannins it made for an easy drinker and one of our daily go-to wines.

Sorry to see 447 sold out. It was an enjoyable drinking wine. I'm waiting for a repeat.

We were delighted with this wine. It's a good value for an everyday wine. The taste of fruit balanced with mild tannins makes it enjoyable with food, or alone during happy hour.
