2009 Cameron Hughes Lot 246 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Closeout) 750ml
Lot 246 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced primarily from top vineyards near St. Helena and the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley. The St. Helena fruit provides elegance and structure, while the Stags Leap fruit provides the intensity and rich color. We also included a small portion of Petit Verdot from a great vineyard near Calistoga. This small infusion of Petit Verdot helps round this exceptional Cabernet. Combined, Lot 246 is balanced, powerful, fruit forward, unrelenting, and deliciously aromatic. This wine was aged in 100% French oak for fifteen months, giving it spectacular elegance and grace. A terrific value at $20, hold or drink through 2024. Compare to $65+ wines. -Cameron
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: A great Cabernet for drinking now with upscale dishes. Production was 2,700 cases, but it’s worth a search. Tastes classy and elegant, with rich blackberry, currant, anise and oak flavors that are dry and complex. For this price, it’s a huge value.
