I am not afraid to admit I buy a lot of his wines. Mostly his high end reds: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Francs, Meritage. Very pleased for the most part. I love the Monte Rosso, Stagecoach, and some of the other Lots. They really are superb wines for great prices.

Just ordered a split case of Lot 584 Spring mountain and Lot 613 Red Mountain Wash. Red.

The Lot 573 Meritage I had over Christmas was spectacular and a shiner from the Reserve program. Just handling the bottle you could tell it was from a high end winery.

Anyway would like to hear from fellow Cellar Trackers who drink the wines.

Roger aka Avalon

I've bought a few before, but I don't think Cameron Hughes (the man) doesn't own Cameron Hughes (the company) anymore. The offers seem a little less appealing now.

Cran- I was worried about that too but I can tell you the latest offerings I have tasted are well up to par for CH. The lot 573 was fantastic and sold out quick- only 40 cases.

I know the company was sold at Bankruptcy but I am sure they secured a contract with CH to stay on.

I really would like to develop a dialog with several fellow shoppers on good deals and tasting notes.

Thanks Roger

There is occasional CH discussion over on WineBerserkers

I was a big fan of Cameron Hughes when he first started. His lot 60 was the one that get me hooked on Stags Leap in Napa valley. However, quality went down and price went up after he took on investors money. I still like the wines, but not with as much enthusiasm as before. Oh, his lot 38 was amazing during its youth.
