Wow! What a great surprise. Good fruit forward and beautiful finish. Opened up an hour before having grilled rib eye. What great balance and very smooth. Wish there was more available. Cam, great job on this one.
I'll add a disclaimer that we opened a bottle of all of our 2014 varieties over the last two weeks. I know these reviews won't help with purchasing advice but hopefully helps those who may still have these laying down.
I had not tried any 602 until now. I had it right after the 601 and I have to be honest that this was not in 601's class, but that doesn't mean it was not excellent. Fresh and ripe fruit right off the bat, and a smooth and fruit forward feel throughout. Maybe not the "depth" of a true superstar napa cab, but the smoothness and richness really shine through. I also think this is an excellent food pairing wine, particularly with something like a spicier pasta dish. I absolutely think it is in the right spot for drinking now, I'm not sure there is much more aging upside at this point.
Special and Smooth
I'm enjoying this now but will enjoy it in the future. It's a good value for a special cab that is smooth but bold.
Very fruity and smooth!
Really like this wine. Smooth and easy to drink. Not a bold cab but just very nice
Hope there is more in the warehouse
This is a nice fruit forward cab. I am glad I ordered some when I did and hope that CH sends out a note that they found some more in the warehouse.
Dark and Beautiful
The tiny bits of blended grapes perfectly integrate the dark fruits for a velvety mouth feel and long finish. This is one of my favorite wines to pair with a grilled steak or heavy beef. I am glad I stocked up.
Really great, high quality wine. Definitely give it a few hours to breathe. Probably a top 3 of the higher end cabs from Cam Hughes this year IMO
A bit overrated, but still a nice wine and a good value. I'd say 90 points is about right. Perhaps it's a bit past it's prime? Or maybe it needs a bit more time?
The petit verdot, malbec, and merlot really round out the wine and give it nice balance. Very nice.
