2007 Lot 172 Atlas Peak Cabernet Cameron Hughes

Unfiltered, unfined in appearance.  Hot summer, cherry blossom nose.  You can even imagine bees humming in the air, fresh green grass under your toes. The wine has a dark purple rim, looks rich and full-bodied.  Fruity, dark ripe cherry, blueberry on the palate.  Earthy, tar from volcanic intrusion, oak on the long finish.  Slight sediment.  Wine will do well with a couple of years aging.  Do not disturb this wine.  Not necessary to decant.  A delicious wine with food.  Try with a fillet or any grilled meat with grilled pineapple.
Lot 172 soon to be released.
