I absolutely love the extraction from these guys. Pours a dark, dense core, greeting you with an initial aromatic wall of cassis, plum, blackberries, and crushed florals unfolding into red fruits, blueberries, and dark chocolate. This is a big boy on entry, with dark fruits and grippy tannins rounded out by soft leather and earth, wrapped in deftly balanced acidity. The long, dry finish is defined largely by terroir, with powerful oak and a kiss of toasted marshmallow upon exit. You definitely want a lot of these in your cellar to savor over the next decade.

Like its predecessors, an exceptionally tight NDA had to be signed for this wine, so what I can reveal here is limited: it’s sourced from the same legendary Oakville, Rutherford, and St Helena vineyards, made tip to tail with no expense spared by world class winemaking talent, and is an epic Cabernet from an iconic blue chip estate that has few peers. Compare at $175+/bottle.
Glad I jumped on this one early. I was a big fan of lot 609. Look forward to coming back to this in a few years.
One of the best CH cabernets to date. Needed a long decant but worth the wait.
Good not great
I opened this on Christmas Eve 2019, and i drank it with out food. I wanted to experience the wine by itself...no out side palate influencers. I also decanted it for an hour. It had a nice fruity nose. The taste was red fuit, especially dark cherry and raspbery. The finish was long and i noted chocolate, carmel, and oak coming through. Overall a good napa cab. However, i feel some of the other cameron hughes napa cabs are just as good but at lower price points.
A Fine Wine
Glad I bought more than one bottle. We opened this one a few hours before we drank it, used it to educate my son on what a really great bottle of wine should taste and feel like in his mouth. A wonderful bonding experience.
Best of Class
A very fine cab with balanced dark fruit that goes on and on. A hint of light tannins that bring it all together. This wine will mature nicely, but is great without waiting. The best CH release of the year!
Opened this up with Christmas Eve Prime Rib Roast. My brother said "it's so smooth I want to fill a kiddie pool with it and lay in it. A classy kiddie pool that is." Extremely smooth amazing cab. We are looking forward to saving our others and letting age for a while, definitely will continue to age well.
I want more of this. What a treat. This wine tastes like it should cost over $100 a bottle. Smooth & warm & everything a Napa cab should be.
This is a truly exceptional wine. Cam's comments are right on the money - dense, extracted, dark. It's a very well balanced wine that I am sure will age well. We decanted it for about 4 hours and it opened up nicely. Another is a long list of CH cabernet gems.
Sip one save one
Needs some time to breath once opened but wow. So glad I bought additional bottles to hold and enjoy later.
This is a wonderful, BIG, full Cabernet. An exceptional value. It will lay down for years and my guess it be even better. I opened a bottle of Lot 609 just days before the 702 - no comparison. Lot 702 is more complex with layers of flavor and finish. Thank you for a great wine Cam.
