Wine Details

The first thing you'll notice here is the contrast between the seemingly impenetrable inky black coloring and the surprisingly exuberant nose, featuring a lush core of black fruits topped off with cassis and succulent floral notes, backed by a chocolatey oak underpinning. In the middle of all this richness, you can smell the structural minerality that effortlessly carries the wine. Opulent on the palate, with gobs of sappy blackberry and black cherry fruit mingling with freshly turned dark soil and espresso bean riding waves of powerful, yet well integrated tannins in a long, long finish. Juicy yet powerful, unctuous yet structured, Lot 616 is a study in contrasting passages and competing elements combining to create a symphony of flavor.

Cam Confidential

Sourced from just inside Napa Valley's northwest border in Calistoga. The fruit for this amazing, blockbuster Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a fantastic low-elevation site in the rolling hills at the bottom of Mount St. Helena, where the Black Mountain Gap provides a welcome respite from the heat on the eastern side of the Calistoga appellation. Aged for 18 months in Taransaud, Allary, and Sylvain French oak, this Clone 337 Cabernet combines ripe valley floor fruit profile with powerful hillside structure, exuding a ripe, yet balanced richness from tip-to-tail. Produced by all-world (literally) winemaking talent in the heart of Calistoga, this Cabernet is the exact same as the source winery's triple digit offering. To boot, I can't find any Cab from this vineyard for less than $175.

Following in the footsteps of Lots 200, 300, 400, 500, 555, 600, and 606, today’s release is a signature representation of what we do best as an organization – offer some of the world’s finest wines at a fraction of the original price.

Big black cherry aroma, some blackberry and loam. Assertive, yet balanced...leans more blackberry in the flavor, with notes of cocoa. I absolutely love this one...wish I would have gotten a case.

Indeed a great wine. Still a little on the young side. Glad I was able to get some
before it was sold out. I will come back to it in a year or so.

We all commented on what an excellent wine this is, truly fantastic. Saving to share with good friends, probably our favourite yet.

We'll see how this is in a couple years.

Full-bodied, yet soft enough to please every palate. As a result it is quite versatile.

My wife and I purchase 20+ cases / year from CH and have been happy with all their wines....but 616 might be the best we have tried from Cam ....ever! Love it

This wine took a long time to decant, but it really opened up. The deep fruit flavors are incredible.

Much smoother than a young wine should be. A great value, disappointed that I can't get more. Bought two and I will definitely let the next one breathe longer. Big nose, earthy, with well-balanced fruit. A winner.

Got a case and just opened a bottle today to wash down a strip steak. Super wine, full bodied. Let it breathe for about an hour. Happy I was able to get a case. will only get better with time.
