Wine Details

No expense spared, Icon-level winemaking. Aged in 50% new French oak, this opaque black wine is textbook, classic Rutherford Cabernet. Sumptuous and suave on the nose, it features a gorgeous mélange of blackberry, cherry, cassis, dark chocolate and mint underpinned with graphite and mineral wrapped in lavender florals. The palate is juicy and succulent, with red and black fruit and a finely knit but resounding kirsch/mocha punch. The tremendous energy and tension that makes the 2014 vintage so exciting is present in spades. Lot 606 is now showing quite well, but would love a nice decant to stretch its legs. Of course, everything’s here and in the right proportions for another 15-20 years of graceful aging.

Cam Confidential

Our “Centennial” Lots anchor our big Cabernet releases each fall, and are selected using one criteria above all others – delivering super high end wine to you at an incredible price. There are always a handful of fine candidates, but in the end, there could only be one. In the footsteps of Lots 200, 300, 400, 500, 555, and 600, Lot 606 is a spectacular heir to its predecessors.

Along with the alluvials of Oakville, the west side benchlands of Rutherford remain one of the most hallowed sites to devotees of Napa Valley Cabernet. Lot 606 hails from one of the most iconic vineyards and legendary names in Rutherford; this is the dirt that put Napa Valley on the map, and made the phrase “Rutherford Dust” a household phrase among wine lovers.

This wine is the definition of the vintage: open knit, complex, lively and energetic. It doesn’t get much sexier than this, and you just don’t find Cabernet of this character at this price. It was presented to me by the winery as sourced from their $200/bottle Cabernet program; having done a bit more inquiry, I'm convinced this is a blend from their $200+ and $100+ bottlings, but once you go into the triple digits, who's splitting hairs? Any way you slice it, this is exceptional value in Napa Cabernet.

This is hands down my favorite CH cab - I loved the 555 and this is just as incredible. Fantastic body, great cherry/chocolate profile with a dry finish. I'm excited to get more, and will be aging some [but I'll have to hide it away to resist the urge to drink it all!]

Had a few bottles sitting around and opened one up for dinner. Best wine I have tasted in a long time for the price range. Will be purchasing more.

I really enjoyed this bold, full-flavored cab with a great balance of fruit and firm tannins!

The best under $30. Great buy. I always have one or two in my cellar.

We've bought 606 several times now and continue to come back. We've taken to decanting for 30 - 60 minutes ahead of first sip. Wonderful nose, lovely mouth feel and smooth on the finish. Highly recommend.

It might not be your favorite of all time, but at $29, it's not the most expensive. My wife is not particularly a Cab drinker, but she liked this one, even without food.

A nice heavy cab, reminds me of lot 400 and 247, some of my all time favorites.

Quintessential Napa Cab. Big and bold, with a good dose of the Rutherford dirt. Great fruit, great tannin, and can likely sit in the cellar for a good time to come. Stock up while you can!

When I think of those unique heavy Cabernets, I think of this wine. I had this at a dinner party and WOW! We are not much into fancy labels, but really like unique flavors. I ordered more of these recently! Goes great with prime rib and potatoes!
