Wine Details

Fantastic nose of smoky spice interwoven with cherry pie, rich blackberry, and chocolately oak notes. Juicy and succulent on the palate, with perfect tannins and structure and a long, warm finish of cherries and chocolate. Hints of blueberry, kirsch and black pepper show up with a bit of air. Very approachable, and a terrific accompaniment to pizza, creamy pastas, burgers, and BBQ.

Cam Confidential

Our Lodi connections continue to impress me with their quality, and Lot 487 2012 Lodi Field Blend is no exception. By now, most of you know that the 2012 vintage was one of the best in California history, and our connections in the southeastern hills of Lodi performed wonderfully. Located where the soil structures turn decidedly more volcanic and have better access to the cooling delta breezes, the vineyards received the full benefit of a terrific growing season. Barrel aged in mostly French oak, this wine offers tremendous value and beautiful oak integration unmatched by similar wines at this price point.

This is the best blend we have had from CH. It is a shame that it is sold out.

This was the first wine we purchased from Cam and is probably still our favorite to date in regard to great taste at such a low price. An excellent blend!

Gary

Bought a couple of bottles of this on a close out at a local grocery store and tried it the other day. Now I'm not a big fan of Zin blends but this one caught me by surprise. Plump juicy wine to drink with food. We had it with cheese and crackers but it would go good with any kind of red meat. A real steal at this price.

Beautifully balanced wine with fruit forward notes that blend into a semi dry finish that has some depth and clarity. This is a smooth wine with great mouth feel and no harsh tannin.

A gorgeous zin blend....astonishing at this price point! Beautifully balanced, wonderful bouquet, no "heat" here. Cam is right about this being a great BBQ and Pizza "summer" wine. I'll be very sad when the last of my couple cases are gone.

We definitely enjoyed Lot 487. A great value with characteristics you normally find in wine north of $30 a bottle. No harsh alcohol, just rounded fruit with dominant Zin. Makes us want to have more.

Another $13 sleeper that needs to sit open, or decant, for about 10 minutes. If you swirl a small amount and linger a bit the next will be REALLY different.
Super daily wine.+++++

and it tastes great! It isn't going to be one of those memorable wines that you spend oodles on and talk about how great it is...it is the wine that you put out for all your friends at the BBQ and don't mind how many bottles they drink. And everyone likes it!
Easy drinking.
