Cameron Hughes Lot 229 Napa Valley Petite Sirah


Happy Sunday to all and wanted to lend my thoughts on this very peculiar new release by Cameron Hughes, a Petite Sirah from Napa Valley.  With a gigantuan, hypnotic, “Drop a quarter on the top of it and it won’t sink to the bottom of the glass” texture and hue, this wine to my surprise with it’s obscenly dense color and body comes off very subdued on the nose and with it’s flavors, offering faint blackberry and boysenberry notes with a consistent push of liquid black licorice.  Kind of dumbfounded and neutral like Switzerland on this one.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
