Wine Details

94 pts, Steve Heimoff - Cameron Hughes 2013 Lot 470 Petite Sirah (Oakville); $19, 14.9%. And while we’re on the subject of Cabs that might be Petite Sirah, here’s a strong, young Petite Sirah that might be a Cab! It’s black in color, except around the edge, where it glows garnet. The aromas and flavors are thick with blackberries, black currants, blueberries and dark chocolate, wrapped into firm, authoritative tannins, and finished with significant new oak. There’s also a meatiness, like the salted, charred fat on a steak. This is a big, big wine, entirely dry, but sweet in fruit. Cameron calls it “bombastic”; not a bad word. It’s Petite Sirah, Napa-style. In fact, Oakville-style, which is to say, classy and sophisticated. This is by far the greatest value in Petite Sirah I’ve ever seen. Get as much as you can; it is not only fantastic now, it will develop in the bottle for many years.

Thick and brooding…like squid ink in the glass. Already complex with a soaring nose of blueberry, black pepper, blackberry jam, toasty hazelnut, and chocolate covered espresso beans. Dense, meaty, lush, and tooth-staining on the palate, with lavishly structured layers of cassis, blackberry jam, mocha, and perfectly ripe tannins. This is a full-bodied, bombastic wine that is bound to be a huge hit at wine tastings and dinner parties alike – it’ll go perfectly hand in hand with rich fatty foods like burgers, roasted meats, and anything else with oversized flavors that can match its own.

Cam Confidential

There isn’t much I can say about Oakville or the 2013 vintage that I haven’t said already, but this is the district that continues to deliver the best of the best. Sourced from 40-year-old vines in the heart of Oakville, Lot 470 was produced with the same exquisite level of care and attention as any of the other superstar reds you can find in our store, and saw barrel aging in 40% new French oak. Compare at $50.

Not a lot of nose on opening. Concentrated fruit and medium tannins. Opened up very nicely after about an hour. Huge ageing potential. Great value for the price.

This Lot 470 was truly enjoyable. I regret not buying more of it when I had the chance. I just read the reviews above and concurr. I can only imagine how this will age and then it will be out of my range on price for sure.

There was a counter full of wines at the dinner party tonight, but the Petite Sirah was the crowd pleaser.

Several folks had never tried the varietal so it was fun introducing this grape. Luckily I brought 2 bottles.

As with most CH wines I buy - I wish I would have bought more!

Please let me know when something similar to 470 comes out!

Thanks! Tom

Very nice Petite, still young obviously, but a brut in the making. Very dark, after decanting an hour+ it really started to open up! Will let it sit a while, and I'm sure it will only get better with time! Nice job Cam!

Rich and big. Very young at the moment, but sure to develop into one of those "dang! i should have bought much more" wines.

For the long weekend, I'm checking out buying some wine--and was really disappointed to see this one is long gone. What a great wine--and spectacular value at $19. Maybe the best deal ever from CH--and that's saying a lot! All sorts of dark fruits and a great finish.

Very smooth, a bit of acid. could win from decanting (I didn't).

We really loved this Oakville Petite Sirah, even better than the Oakville Merlot. Dark and fruity.

I thought this was a pretty good Petite Sirah but was a bit dry for my taste lacking fruit

I can't believe I bought a wine this good at this price, let alone a napa petite sirah. Wound tight but with a good decant gives you glimpses of what's to come after some more time in the bottle. All of the components are there. Fruit, tannins, acid, expensive oak. Highly impressed!
