Wine On A Spit

We got to thinking: people like BBQs. People like Wine. Why wouldn't people like BBQ'd wine?

Really, it's got everything people love about summer.

All you need to do is take a bottle of wine, put it on the spit and then roast it. Then, once you're done, you get a delicious bowl of piping hot wine with melted glass, cork, and paper. Wait, seriously? That doesn't sound appetizing at all. Who approved this idea?

This is wine, folks. It's meant for drinking, and drinking only. Well, and cooking pasta and stuff like that, but it's not meant to be a main course! Unless you're a species that only consumes wine, then, okay, yes, it can be a main course, but that's not the point!

This Cameron Hughes Summer BBQ red wine is meant to be enjoyed at your barbeque, in a normal wine glass, alongside a steak or whatever else you cook on your grill, assuming that whatever else isn't a bottle of wine.

Features

This red wine sampler is a BBQ wine orgy! Big, rich, undulating reds that love meat or anything very rich and creamy. It is an attraction that in taste is almost perfection. Ripe, juicy, and slightly over the top, Cameron Hughes reds are coveted in the wine business and in this sampler, we get our very own exclusive. A big big syrah from France and a gold medal winning Field Blend. Not to mention the pedigreed Meritage from Napa - seriously folks, this is a red winegasm sampler that comes once a year at this kind of discount.
 

2010 Lot 325 Atlas Peak Meritage 750ml 2-Pack

On the nose, pretty raspberry notes dance upon a wild and loamy black fruit core. Subtle notes of exotic spice. Gracefully refined tannins infused with pretty red fruit flavors that linger endlessly on the palate.
 
The Atlas Peak appellation can be demanding with its high elevation, thin soils, and rocky outcrops. Yet those who see beyond its challenges are rewarded with a mountain-influenced climate with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers. Atlas Peak is sunny. Yet, night-time temperatures drop, making it a perfect combination for growing grapes with good sugars and acid.

2011 Lot 352 Cote Du Rhone, France 750ml 2-Pack
 
Lot 352 is laced with scents of fresh berry, peppercorn and fruit jam. The wine is texturally lush with cherry and plum flavors interlocked with black pepper and tapenade to finish. The wine has great purity and freshness. Phenomenal.
 
Cameron Hughes assembled the blend of big, rich componentry and laid it into barrels (in France) for about 14 months of barrel aging. The result is a dynamic Grenache/Syrah blend which is notable for its riper, richer style than your typical Côtes du Rhône.
 
2010 Lot 339 California Field Blend 750ml 2-Pack
 
Lot 339 is fresh with delineated black fruits, peppers, cherries and red plum notes. Integrated tannins frame a chewy finish meshed with exotic spice notes.
 
Lot 339 combines Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre for a tasty California spin on these famous Rhone varietals. This wine is the best of the old-world and the new, the classic and the updated…Purity of essence if you will.
