Wine Details

The freshness and elegance that marked the 2014 vintage shines through here with a return to a more classic Knights Valley style. The wine is dark in the glass, showcasing chocolate covered raisin and blueberry fruit with hints of graham cracker. Powerful and rich on the palate yet absolutely lip-smacking with well-delineated fruit that delivers good complexity and a deft sense of balance.

Cam Confidential

Lot 562 is sourced from a super high-end producer, perched on the hillside over 1,500 feet above the Knights Valley floor, 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. 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.

Full flavored. Great with any food or alone. Looking forward to more with this quality

In general, I've not been a big fan of Zin - probably from having had earlier (pre-CH Wines) experiences with poor quality - so, it was with some trepidation that I decided to try a few bottles of Lot 562. Now I know how a quality Zin tastes! Thank you Cam! As this one is sold out, I'll look forward to future offerings!

great flavor, smooth, a fine Zin 562 is a winner

We try to order at least a case of every CH Zin / Zin blend release, as they are consistently good.

Agree with others that 562 was the best yet --- by far, in my reckoning.

Chased some Lot 588 --- which my wife and I both enjoyed --- with a glass of this last week, and it was simply "Wow!" --- well balanced, but what a ker-pow of great fruit on the palate!

Also with the others lamenting the fact that 562 is all gone. Thanks for this initial taste, but please get the stars to align once more and score some more of this great Zin!

We are big fans of the Old Vine and Zinfandel offerings from CH Wine. This one was the best to date. Rich, dark, full.yet not over the top "jam", made this one a hit. Sorry it was gone before we could re-up!!!
Cheers!

Sad because, I didn't buy more! Love good Zins and this one, albeit, a bit lighter than others I've enjoyed, is very approachable. Easy drinking red and I'm enjoying it immensely!

I have to say I have loved the Zins from Cameron Hughes. This is no exception. Full bodied and so smooth. I could drink this one daily. Sadly it is sold out.

Absolutely loved this style of Zinfandel. We drank it last night with a savory Rotatouille and it complimented the dish perfectly. Medium bodied, fruity, nicely balanced. Let it breath a little and enjoy!

CH has found an exceptional value in a Zinfandel. Only negative thing I can say is this wine sold out much too fast! I wish I had purchased more bottles. CH continues to impressive us!

Outstanding nose. Drinking now. Somewhat dry in the taste and finish for a Zin, but a very nice wine at a great price.

I usually pick up a bottle of wine if its from Knights Valley. But this was an incredible value for a great zin. I am glad a got a case cause its gone now.
