Can anyone recommend a Cameron Hughes current release?

I've had the Edna Valley chardonnay which I didn't care for and I've had one of the cabernets (lot 28 I think) which is way too young to enjoy now.

If there's a bottle that's drinking really well right now, please let me know.

  1. The Lot 24 Syrah is pretty good.

    1. The thing with CH wines is that you are getting them at a discount partially because they have almost no bottle time. None of his wines drink as well as they can straight out of the bottle. Either decant for > 2 hours or lay down for at least a year. I usually buy a case, decant for as long as I can stand it & then base my decision on that. I haven't returned any CH wines to Costco yet. The lot 27 Syrah got a lot better 4-5 hours after decanting. The Lot 9 03 Paso Robles Syrah is superb now.
