Cameron Hughes Wine Lot 161, 2007 Meritage Sonoma County
Yummy, jammy nose, lots of fruit. The juicy fruit and smooth tannins allows this wine to be drunk on its own or with food. This '07 is very drinkable now. A little pepper on the finish, this wine was ready to bottle and Cameron got all the credit. It's delicious. Buy a case - it's not only a Monday wine; it's a Saturday Steak Night wine. It certainly went well with my New York Steak that I got at Molly Stones (I love that store) and it wasn't even effected by the big fat artichoke I steamed with creamy mayo. A perfect Monday evening for me listening to KSCM.org (jazz). There is nothing better than a good bottle of red ($8.99), a good steak and some happening Jazz. The quality of this wine is 3X the price point.
