Dark, dark, dark – pretty much pitch black and very extracted, with a little red around the rim. It’s tight out of the bottle, with immediate notes of fresh turned earth and mocha. With just little air, brilliant raspberry aromas leap from the glass and are underpinned with brambly blackberry, more mocha, and enticing dark chocolate. A high-toned earthiness adds layers of complexity that are furthered by its broad and deep palate and tightly wound, tooth-staining tannins.

Style: Full, Bold

Flavors: Blackberry, Blackcurrant, Tannins

Cam Confidential
A winery owned by one of the biggest names in cult Napa Valley Cabernet has quietly changed hands. The vineyards themselves were not a part of the transaction, and because of the lack of continuity in vineyard sourcing for future productions, the winery's library collection became available. The Cameron Hughes Private Reserve Collection is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of one the world's most exclusive wine libraries.
