Wine Details

Blueberry essence is immediate on the nose, and with a bit of air opens up to reveal violet florals, cedar shavings, dark berry and wood smoke. Rum raisin, savory coffee, and blackberry compote flavors mingle on a dense, yet open-knit and expressive palate. A runaway favorite for pairing with a rich, fatty steak or anything else with bold, oversized flavors.

Cam Confidential

Lot 458 is sourced from one of the godfathers of the “new” Petite Sirah budwood on the Central Coast. This man has done more to propagate the varietal than just about anyone there, leading to a renaissance of Petite Sirah that is just now beginning to see some real momentum (plantings of this varietal languished throughout the 2000s, and it continues to be one of the rarest grapes in California). The wine itself has spent almost three years in barrel, patiently developing its dark intensity into an open-knit, accessible package. At $15/bottle, this is an absolutely ridiculous value for a wine of this quality.

I could sniff this wine all day! Candy nose and essense, like jolly ranchers for adults.
Please get more of this stuff, I could drink it daily.

Beautiful huge nose. Very concentrated taste with raisins and black cherry on the taste. Either decant for an hour or leave in the glass about the same time and it is beautiful. One of the best CH wines especially for the price.

Let it sit awhile to let the flavors pop.

Loaded with purple -red fruit, this wine at such a sweet price point is perfect with grilled meat- red sauce pasta and pizza. Where can you get this taste for the price. Petite sirah continues to be an under the radar gem

This and other recent CH wines have turned my into a real Petite Sirah fan. Hoping future vintages are similar to this.

Just opened this beauty up, poured pretty aggressive to open it up, let it sit for a bit then tasted. BAM!!!! First words out of my mouth are unprintable - this wine absolutely rocks. I'm absolutely kicking myself for only ordering a bottle to "test", then "test" late and get screwed.

Cameron - please bring back a relative of this if you can. Kissing cousin is fine with me. Superb job.

I'm so bummed this wine has sold out. Beautiful on the nose and on the palate.

We don't have the nose or taste buds for Mr. Hughes, but we know what we like and this is an excellent wine.
