Lot 157 Cameron Hughes Cabernet

Here's another one that won't last long, just released, '07 Lot 157 Cab from Yountville, Napa Valley.  9% syrah adds to its complexity and on the earthy finish.  Dark bing cherry color, with a sweet cherry, cinnamon aroma and fruit-filled mouthful.  Tobacco, tar on the long, velvet finish.  This is a delicious food wine.  Serve with roasted pork topped raisin chutney, side of grilled root vegetables.  The wine is ready now because of its fruitforwardness.  Don't think it will get too much better with age.  Does not need to be decanted.
