Wine Details

Despite its dark and fairly dense visage, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers an intense perfume of spicy-sweet desert florals like lavender and sage, harmoniously interlaced with a mélange of pacific northwest berries. If you made Cabernet in the Rhône Valley, this is what it would smell like – garrigue, meet cassis, and blackberry. Supple on entry with a lightly chewy, chocolatey, cassis-driven mid-palate, it finishes with waves of spicy fruit and a peppery flourish in a long, rich, medium-full-bodied finish. A unique offering in the Cabernet realm, this wine is remarkable for its harmonious, balanced depiction of the varietal. From Napa Cab lovers to Châteauneuf fans, Lot 588 will have broad appeal, delivering big, sophisticated flavors in an artisanal fashion you simply will not find at $15 on the shelf.

Cam Confidential

In the far northeastern corner of Santa Barbara County, east of the Santa Rita Hills/Happy Canyon appellations and behind the Sierra Madre Range, the land becomes an arid, high-desert, 3,000-foot-elevation mesa where the fog rarely treads for long, but the wind certainly does. Receiving only 6-12 inches of rain per year, the Cuyama River Valley is formed of ancient, alluvial drainages you often see just inland while flying down from SF to LA. With plentiful wind, well-drained soils and sparse water, they offer a perfectly challenging environment for both Bordelaise and Rhone varietals, and here you’ll find the sprawling 750-acre Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, source to many boutique producers in Santa Barbara County as well as today’s release.

This is one of my favorite value wines of the year from CH. Easy to drink. Slight oak that tastes much more expensive. Ordering more.

Tasty & subtle. Solid value but not as high as other CH wines. If I got it in a restaurant and paid $45, I would think I got a steal.

This is a nice everyday cab to drink before, during and after a meal. And the price can't be beat. I know nothing about Santa Barbara wines except for the Chardonnays of the 80's, so I was pleasantly surprised.

If I may direct your attention to the center ring, the 588 is NOT clowning around. The spotlight shines strong on this Big Top performer: Subdued spices, a tease of berry and a longgg finish! Make no mistake, as this CH Lot delivers for a bargain price.
This elephant-in-the-room smiles right back at you after decanting, and if you don't hold back the lions, the 588 will be gone quickly.

A very nice Cab, has a Rhone Valley like earthiness to it with strong fruit on the mid palate, very rich with depth. A bit of pepper on the finish, tight tannins. Going to definitely get some more of this.
