The Sierra Foothills is one of our favorite regions to find new treasures. Entirely appropriate, given its location at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains – the heart of the California gold rush. Here amidst rolling oak-studded hillsides and long forgotten 49er ghost towns, about 100 boutique wineries continue a tradition of viticulture that dates back to the 1840s. Almost all of them are too small for nationwide distribution, but lucky for you, our reach is deep!
We love this AVA because of its reasonable land costs, great sun/wind exposure, and prime drainage – all the check marks for “California hidden gem.” Lot 733 comes to us from a beautiful winery located a short trek from historic Route 49. Produced from estate vineyards at 1300 ft elevation under the hands of a winemaker whose resume is littered with 90+ scores and gold medals for his work in Napa, Sonoma, and the Sierra Foothills alike, this is pure pleasure in a glass and a great opportunity to sample a rare California varietal. A Double Gold medal winner under its winery label, it’s a small lot gem that’s a heck of a deal at $18!
One of the worst wines I’ve ever ordered from Cameron Hughes. Had our friends over who also order from Cameron Hughes and they agreed. I cannot understand the glowing reviews.
This was an unusual wine and I don't recall a chocolate taste in any previous petite Syria. Could it be California wildfire smoke? Not a bad wine on balance but not the fruit I expected. Just bought one bottle.
I really enjoyed this wine -- one of the better CH wines I've had in a while. I came to try to order more - very disappointed it's out!
A wonderful, bold wine. We found it to be a delight
Was a little bold and dense like what you would expect, but I guess my pallet was not ready for it. I have not drank many petite Syrah so I really have to be nuetral on this review. Like they say “ to each his own”
Solid Petite Sirah
This was a solid wine. No negatives about it. Easy to drink and enjoy
What a beautiful wine! Gorgeous dark burgundy color and bold yet smooth going down. Loved this one~
great petite syrah
enjoyed throughout the holidays, hope to see this one again!
Shoulda bought more
Very nice early taste of fruit and solid balance to the last sip. I find I'm drinking more just to ascertain whether I should stock up. This time I didn't drink quickly enough. ; )
Great Petit Shirahs!
This was a big hit on Christmas. Too bad it is sold out!
