Wine Details

Beautifully aromatic and fresh right out of the bottle, with Bing cherry, cola notes and a floral/cardamom perfume. With some air, darker blueberry and blackberry fruit and lovely balsamic notes appear. Rich, luscious and full bodied on the palate, with flavors of black cherry and blueberry that finishes on a high note with plenty of spiced fruit. Juicy, fresh, lively, delicious!

Cam Confidential

As I've mentioned before, my favorite opportunity buys are shiners - bottles of wine that have no label on them. Some folks just happen to have a little bit extra out of big vintages like '12/'13/'14, and I was more than happy to scoop these up. Lot 482 is a single vineyard designate wine, was aged in the finest French oak, and has already been in bottle for two years. It is usually only sold in the producing winery's tasting room for $50-$60, but is available here today for only $22!

Great body, color, and unmistakable pinot noir fruit, reminiscent of higher end Garry Farrell style pinots. I wish the alcohol content was a bit lower than 14.9 %.

If I had just sampled this wine without having previously finished a bottle of lot 481 it would have been 5 stars. This wine will not disappoint. Onwards to lot 483.

This was my favorite of the 4 Pinots featured in June. Nice classic Pinot flavors. I didn't give it 5 stars because it tasted just not quite as big as I would have liked it to have been. It is still a great value and when I run out of the 505, this will be my go to Pinot.

Decant it for an hour; swirl it thoroughly; enjoy. It was the perfect match for seared rare tuna steak au poivre last night. Truly noteworthy Pinot--and not the biggest of the "quartet." Bien fait.

Had the 482 last night with lamb chops and it paired up very well. It was good from the go with an excellent nose and full fruit. It was even better after the bottle had been open for about 1/2 hour. This should last a while as well. I'll see how my other bottle fares in another 6 months. Best Cameron Hughes Pinot I've yet had..

Perry

Decanted for one hour and was very fruity, I have to agree with the other person the 483 is better.

I found this to be a great bottle. Let it breath for an hour or so and you have a super pinot noir.

To start, I feel 483 is a better Pinot and the $2 price difference is worth it. Starts off a bit acidic and then smooths out as it finishes. You should be happy here but grab the 483 if you can.
