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.
A Little Patience
Lot 662 definitely needed plenty of time to breathe but its will worth it! Squid ink, lush, dark fruit and bold!
Just add air!
A bold wine that needs to breathe a little to be enjoyed. Will only get better with time.
We decanted more than 3 hours before dinner (grilled, pepper strip steaks), at first was disappointed. However, over the next couple of hours it opened up and was most enjoyable. Bold and complex with soft tannins.
Don’t wait! Buy now!
Another fantastic wine from Cam! I’ve yet to buy a wine from here and been disappointed. Wonderful wine and tremendous value!
Really nice Sonoma cab, our favorite varietal. Goes toe-to-toe with many Napa cabs. Would definitely buy again.
Great Find & Big Flavor
This Cab surprised me because I haven't had many from the region, but CH finds a great gem again. Worth the price for sure. Thanks CH!
Another quality offering from CH that challenges our preconceptions about Napa supremacy. Great find guys, keep them coming!
Lovely wine. Big, delicious fruit jumps out of the glass. A rich mouthful to be sure. Don't know how it will age but it is wonderful now.
Worth buying. Excellent Value
A cab from Sonoma? Are you kidding? Sonoma is known for its outstanding Chardonnay and Pinot Noir right? Well this cabernet from CH is a revelation. I am now sold that Sonoma can produce an elegant , smooth, well structured wine with a finish that leaves you wanting more and wishing you had bought more. Worth the money. Open the wine a full hour before drinking. It keeps improving as time goes on.
This cab was absolutely phenomenal. Candied black cherry dipped in dark chocolate dusted with cacao powder. A powerful fruit forward punch rounded out with bittersweet dry notes and tannins. I will be saving my other bottles for a few years to see how well this ages. <3
