Vote For Your Favorite: Cameron Hughes

Cameron Hughes Strikes Again, and Again, and Again...



Truth is I’m supposed to be writing about a great offer from Cameron Hughes Wine here which features an exciting contest (you can vote for your favorite of the three wines in our Special Sampler, and the winner will be included in a killer follow-up offer), but after spending a few hours with Cam last week, I really want to take this opportunity to introduce Cam the man. I think everyone who joined us last week for this very special, inaugural video tasting would say that while the wines were great, Cam’s passion is infectious! He loves these wines, and what he is doing. You can just feel the thrill of the chase he experiences as he recounts tracking down a great Campo de Borja Garnacha (which was awesome by the way) or one of his latest discoveries from the hillsides above Napa Valley (ditto). I was able to capture some of Cam’s greatest moments on video, so make sure you click through to see him discuss his wines, and the business, but before you leave us let me introduce the Snooth Special Sampler Pack.

This Special offer for Snooth members consists of a 3 pack of great wines for $44.00, with shipping included. But wait, it gets better. This three pack, which consists of one bottle each of lots 129,135, and 169 (this 2007 Napa Valley Merlot is a new release debuting exclusively to the Snooth community), is part of a contest.  Cameron Hughes is asking you to vote for your favorite, the winning wine will be part of a super special deal to be offered early in May.

So place an order for your Snooth Special Sampler, and while you’re at it, order any other wine from Cameron Hughes Wine and use the coupon code 15SNOOTH1 at check out to receive 15% off those additional bottles (order 2 cases or more and receive free ground shipping in the continental US to boot).  Once you get your wines, simply taste them and visit Cameron Hughes' group page on Snooth to vote for your favorite one. We’ll be sharing the results, and a special offer, in an email on Wednesday May 12, so while this outstanding offer is good through May 11, order soon to make sure your vote gets counted!

Great Garnacha

Lot 129 2007 Campo de Borja Garnacha
This really fills the glass with spicy, vanilla laced notes of herbs, dirt, and bright fruit. It’s a touch simple but is so exuberant who cares? The entry on the palate is light and fresh, with surprising focus and lovely crisp tannins The wildberry/blueberry/red currant fruit is driven to a long, slightly earthy, tobacco tinged finish by that refreshing acidity. Really great balance, delicious and fun to drink.

Sizzling Syrah

Lot 135 2007 Central Coast Syrah
This is really wonderfully aromatic with note of juniper, black pepper, bay leaf, bacon fat and blueberry on the perfummy nose. On the palate there’s nice medium weight with a balanced feel. The fruit is black and broad on the palate, with nice dusty tannins giving this a balanced but muscular feel. The fruit on the palate is a bit simple, plummy, edged in vanilla and finishing with a bitter cocoa tone.

Stunning Merlot

Lot 169 2007 Napa Valley Merlot
This shows a great carob note to the nose layered over notes of plums, cocoa, and a slight underlying vegetal note that is subtle and soothing. On the palate this comes across as a light, easy styled Merlot but not particularly fruit driven. In reality it's pretty elegant with fine grained tannins and very well integrated acids making this feel a bit smaller than it is. Give this a year or two and watch it fill out.
