Remarkably soft and silky on the palate with loads of red cherries, plump, juicy, farmer’s market ripe strawberries, evolving on the palate and inspiring childhood memories of strawberry fruit leather. All of it is wrapped in tempting sweet oak spice notes. Pair Lot 949 with braised short ribs, mushroom risotto, or little gem salads with dried fruit and nuts.

Time to roll out the red carpet for Lot 949 2019 Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon, a red blend that’s here to knock out the competition. We love to talk about Red Blends from Napa because we also like to brag that we’ve got the category covered in spades. If there’s one thing we do well for Cameron Hughes fans, it’s whip up delicious red blends that over-deliver on the price point. Full stop!
When we scan the lists of some of Napa’s best red blends according to the bigtime critics out there—Food & Wine magazine, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine Spectator what we see of Napa Valley blends is typical: no shortage of great wines—but all priced way over $40 a bottle! The other thing we noticed? We buy grapes from some of the same top producers mentioned! In one article alone, we could pick out two wines over $50 from producers where we buy grapes!
In our Napa County red blend – Lot 949 is a field blend of Petite Sirah, Grenache, Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, and Alicante Bouchet. It’s called a ‘field blend’ because the grapes all grow together in one field, which is harvested all at once to create one wine (rather than harvesting the varietals separately and then blending the wines together.) In 2019, a “beautifully classic vintage,” grapes ripened to perfection, retaining bright, natural acids. One sip of this wine is like biting into a plump, juicy, farmer’s market ripe strawberry! It can evoke long-lost memories of foods you don’t eat anymore — strawberry fruit leather, anyone? Channel that nostalgia with this big, delicious adults-only Red Blend. At only $25 per bottle, you’re getting a steal of a Napa Valley red blend that hits in all the right places for roughly half the price of its competitors.
