Wine Details

Pours very dark in the glass - nearly opaque, but with an electric edge to it. Super expressive but ever-shifting at this stage, going from chocolaty earth to plum and black cherry before developing into blackberry, coffee bean, and loamy olive notes. Complex and still evolving in the bottle, the aromas should coalesce and the palate unwind sometime later this year before settling in for longer term aging. The structure is fantastic - while the wine is far from its final form, you can already tell the structure is not impenetrable like the 2013s were at this point (and largely still are to this day); rather, the wine is perfectly balanced, with complete harmony between fruit and structure.

Cam Confidential

Lot 611 is sourced from a vineyard named after the shape of a reclining woman (hint hint) that's largely an insider's secret from which a who's who of Napa Valley winemakers produce their signature offerings. From my own searching, I can't find any single-vineyard designate Cabernets sourced from this vineyard that sell for under $120/bottle (I incorrectly stated $85 in the video, but when you reach these price points does it really matter?).

Straight out of the same bottling run as the producing winery, and simply put, you'll never find anything close to this level of first-run quality in Napa Valley at $32/bottle. I do recommend you hang onto this for another couple of months before opening – probably mid-December 2017 at the earliest.

Lots of fruit, viscous, delicious, highly drinkable. Good even with chicken, and divine alone in its glass. Highly recommend.

Still very young and required 2+ hour decant before opening

Great value and will only get better over time!

Red fruit, unique minerality and some herbaceous notes (could be eucalyptus as CH said) on the nose. Dry wine, interesting on the palate with tremendous length. Needs some time for everything to come together but is very nice now after a 24 hour decant.

My favorite of the new releases so far (Note: haven't tried 615 or 616 yet - so I guess at minimum my favorite of the others). Drinks like a special occasion wine. Great stuff.

I thought this wine was great. Let it open up for a litlle bit and got better. Fantastic value overall. Can't go wrong for 30 bucks!

This wine had a bolder taste and great finish. Smoother than the 616, less acidity.
Immediate (nice) flavor with the first sip. Didn’t have to wait or search for the taste.

I really liked this wine. But my wife thought it a little to dry. Perhaps the truth is in between. The tannins were a little strong but I like cabs that way. Let it air for a while before drinking.

I'm not as sophisticated as all these folks who can tell what a wine is going to be like in a few years, I guess. The parts of this wine all seem to be fighting each other, to me.

It wasn't a bad wine, by any means. At the price point, it's about market -- and I expect CH to be two steps ahead of what I can get on the street for the same dollar.

Probably be kicking myself in a year when I drink the second bottle.

WOW! What a powerful wine. Need to open a day before as the tannins are pretty strong. If you can open and wait a day to drink you will have a wine that you swear is over $100/bottle. Enjoy this incredible wine!

This wine had a very nice nose and vanilla was prominent. It has weight, and I know the fruit will come out. Its' just very tight righ now and needs time. 4 stars for now- will be 5 stars in a year or so.
