Cameron Hughes Lot 211

Just got a new shipment of Cameron Hughes wine yesterday and cracked a bottle of the new Lot 211 Cabernet Sauvignon. With a captivating nose of red raspberries, black cherries and cassis, I took my first sip of my new found love, experiencing wonderful medium bodied concentrated red and dark fruit, mild smooth tannin and a smooth, moderate lengthened finish.   This wine has stellar balance and paired quite nicely with my late night dinner of boneless pork sirloin chops and eggplant Parmesan.  Definitely one the better Cameron Hughes wines I have had over the past several months.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.


Cartlidge and Browne Pinot Noir

Had the 2009 Cartlidge and and Browne Pinot Noir from Northern Coast California a couple nights ago and even though quaffable, it  came off more like a moderately jammy Sonoma Zin.  I can’t believe how thick some of these California Pinots are, especially ones from The Carneros area. Some have fruit so thick that you could cut it with a knife.   I  guess I am a purest, but when I think of great Pinot Noir, I think of lean and wonderful mouthfeel.
