  • 2007 Cameron Hughes Syrah Lot 178 - USA, California, Napa / Sonoma, Carneros (8/12/2014)
    Dark garnet, evergreen balsam nose with some leather. Dry with some heat, red currants, chewy tannins with a hint of bitter cinnamon, green pepper and nutmeg on the long finish. Open for an hour and should get better overnight. another hour or so and starting to integrate nicely, heat diminishing, soft fruit of pomegranate developing complexity. Soft tannins with a bark note. Seems to need some food to bring out the best. Some sharp cheddar works well. (91 pts.)

Thanks for the note. Still sitting on a couple of these. One of the best QPR buys I can recall. This is Havens Hudson juice, cray-cray for the price.
