Lot 716 | 2016 Sonoma County
A small lot mountain Cabernet from a winemaker of terrific pedigree. Deep, dark, and delicious.
Free Ground Shipping on all orders of 12 or more bottles.
Very dark in the glass with an impenetrable core, greeting you with a nose of roasted red bell peppers, cassis, and plum paste, all haloed by eucalyptus. On the palate, white pepper, tar, leather, and small, firm tannins carry across expertly woven acidity. The finish is long and dry, beginning in the red fruit spectrum and quickly shifting to the depths of the rooted soils – while not French, dare I say terroir?

Good, not great
I didn't love this Cab as much as Lot 732 but it was still very good.
I was so glad this became available again! I had a bottle with my parents a few months back, and now snagged one of my own. This wine was fantastic after decanting!
Another wonderful Cab
Another great Cab from Cam. We found this to be very full flavored - robust. The slight spicy-peppery flavored really are typo the character of the wine. Someone said that it took an hour of air time to open up, but I found that it very good after only five minutes, and it got better from there.
Deep ruby red, gorgeous color. So drinkable. It is uncomplicated and opens up in about an hour. Flavors are well balanced and subtle. Oh, if only there was more!
Great bouquet with deep ruby color and hints of black berries and dark cherries. Full bodied and dry. An other great wine sold out.
I really enjoyed this, but I may be CH spoiled because I have had slightly better! Having said that - it was quite good! Not complaining!
Pepper & tar for sure
Enjoyed the peppery, earthy character. Wouldn’t order more at the price point, but happy to try it as a part of my club shipment!
This is what being part of the Cam Hughes Wine Club is all about!! You get incredible wines like 716. 716 is just a perfect cab.
Best so far this year
Great, big, complex wine...but still very smooth. Purchased it by the case.
