Review: ***+ $ Cameron Hughes Lot 254 Meritage Red Wine, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara County, CA, 2008 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Cameron Hughes Meritage.


Original tasting and review : This is Cameron Hughes Lot 254 Meritage Red Wine, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara County, CA, 2008.

In the glass: Deep magenta with purple cast.

On the nose: Poured cool and swirled vigorously, shows soft, bold, fresh plum.  From the aroma, seems like this will be cracklingly bright and deep.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact velvet-lined bold purple jet blasts, sleek, full and even fleshy.  Finish holds with a mineral tautness, but with fruit and aromatics held in full frame. 

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a plus for well-suited power on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value.
