Wine Details

For a Zinfandel, this is very densely colored in the glass. It sports a huge (yet nicely delineated) nose of cigar smoke, tobacco leaf, raspberry and pepper, fleshed out with blackberry and milk chocolate notes – it’s surprisingly fresh and complex for a wine that spent over three years in barrel. A lush, ripe, fleshy entry is immediately backed by a powerful wave of tannins and gobs of lip-smacking, peppery fruit that cascade over your palate in a long, perfectly balanced finish. Remarkable for a wine that weighs in at a hefty 16.4%!

Cam Confidential

Not for the shy - indeed, this is the biggest, richest, tooth-staining Zinfandel we’ve ever done.

Lot 561 is sourced from a super high end producer on the hillside over 1500 feet above the Knights Valley floor, located at the eastern edge of Sonoma where it meets Napa Valley. While primarily known for producing some of the most age-worthy Cabernets in California, the winemaking genius behind this winery has also applied his talents to Zinfandel.

With over three years in barrel (from the terrific 2013 vintage, I might add), this uber ripe, bombastic, powerful wine is one of the most intense Zinfandels you’ll ever taste out of California. Due to various circumstances, I was able to negotiate an exceptional price, and at $15/bottle this is a crazy deal considering the level of talent and quality of grapes that went into this bottle.

Unrecognizable from 6 months or so ago - only have 2 left and certainly wish i had bought more than the 15 I did - "wow" was commonly used by our friends who drank 3 bottles the other evening. Fantastic stuff

Really big wine! Oak comes through really nicely. A bit more acidic then other Zins we’ve got through Cam but big bold profile can’t be beat. Great value

No wonder this baby is sold out. What an outstanding value for Zin lovers. Bold with a great nose that screams of raspberries and blackberries. Like others, wished I had ordered more

We were so pleased with this one - a really full bodied wine that we were going to order some more, but it's sold out! Enjoy those who were able to order more.

Massive, sweet, dark fruit over some me heat. Dynamite! I’d order more now if there were many re in stock.

Normally, my wife and I have similar opinions on specific wines, but not in this case. I enjoyed Lot 561 quite a bit, but my wife did not. We are going to try Lot 559 next, and are confident we will both love it as usual.

Wow, love the nose and finish. Seeing the low stock makes me wish I had gotten more on my last shipment. One of the best Zin's I've had!! Well done.
