Produced by a Napa Valley winery from a Sonoma Valley vineyard just west of the famed Monte Rosso Vineyard (and by just west I mean maybe a few hundred yards down the hillside), this wine was an absolute standout, not only holding its own but outperforming Oakville and Rutherford offerings from the same winery at double the price.
Dark, inky, and exquisite, it’s a beautiful Cabernet that perfectly sums up the 2016 vintage with its combination of power, finesse, beguiling aromatics, and supple mouthfeel. Perfectly proportioned in every way and a terrific testament to underappreciated terroir of the cooler hillside regions in the southern portions of Sonoma Valley, this is some of the classiest juice you’ll ever see at $29/bottle – not surprising, given the fruit for this wine was the anchor component in a $100/bottle Icon-level Cabernet Sauvignon.
It was ok.
I've only had one bottle so I will temper this review. In my summary I noted "it was ok" and it was, but maybe I need to try another bottle especially after reading some other good reviews. To me, maybe it was a bit too fruity for my taste. To each his own!!
Dark, rich and delicious
This wine is developing beautifully. Nice, full body with a tongue coating feel to it. The flavors explode in your mouth and continue to last after the wine is gone. Aromas are subdued but are more prominent now (March, 2019) than when first released. At this price this may be the best value of Cam's current releases.
Beautiful deep dark color with an amazingly soft mouth feel with very structured tannins and a remarkable finish that seemed to linger on forever. I’m reminded of another fantastic cab from the same area with a catchy little name (Artists Series)!!!
Great Potential, Wonderful Value
Stacks of fruit and well balanced tannins. I am going to wait another year before trying my next bottle (shame - it will probably be sold out by then...)
A very good Cab!
Terrific nose, great balance of earthiness and dark fruits, and a long finish. Best enjoyed after decanting. Very good value for the price!
Nice today with more to come ...
Lovely but young ... give it some decanter time, or better yet hold for a few years to get the full reward!
Great Full Body Wine
If you're a fan of true full body, flavorful reds, you'll love this one. Happy with the purchase and the price point.
What a great Cab! Very full bodied, upfront fruit and fantastic color. Tannins calm down nicely after about an hour decant but let you know that this wine will age nicely. What a great addition to this Napa heavy portfolio of Cabs. I was pleasantly surprised. I only ordered two bottles initially but will definitely order a case down the road if it happens to stay in the CH inventory. I think Lot 662 rivals the other 66_ series but for $29 a bottle it is by far a "Best Value" five star selection. If I had to choose between the Lot 671 Meritage at $24 and Lot 662 Sonoma Cab at $29 I would say this is worth the extra $5 a bottles. You can't go wrong with either of these fantastic wines.
Excellent cab, but I loved more the 663 Rutherford cab I had last night.
Another Wow Cab
We really liked this cabernet . Decanted and let it breath about 2 hours and it opened up nicely.
