2018 Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Barbara Lot 735 $16 - 88 Points

High viscosity, deep bulls-blood red, and deep clarity in the glass. Fresh aromatics offer wild flowers, violets, and a mocha-dusted cigar box. Supple-textured and low density, the palate's approach is simple and with a bit of heat, but unfolds into a juicy blue and red fruit quaffer. Nothing serious here, and neither is the price tag. All in all, a versatile cab that will play well with everything from grilled chicken to stewed vegetarian dishes. 87 points. (Sample)
