2005 Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 35 Yountville

Enjoyed this tonight, Valentine's Day, but he glass at Cork restaurant in Westmont, NJ. Considering we are in NJ, at $8.50 a glass this was not bad at all compared to some of the ridiculous prices you pay for other wines off the lists around here.

No idea how long this wine had been open, but it had a nice cherry nose, with hints of tar, tobacco, other red fruits, and hints of oak. On the palate, this wine was creamy and delicious for a wine by the glass off of a restaurant menu. Hints of berry, vanilla, and caramel, and dark currants. The finish on this wine was very smooth, and there was little to no tannin. that being said, this was a nice wine worthy of 86 points. Cheers!
