Fall Picnic With Cameron Hughes

Ben and I are so fortunate to live right by wine country where some of the most amazing wines are made.  We love good blends and have developed such an appreciation for wine and how it is made ever since moving here to CA and experiencing the process.  We were recently introduced to Cameron Hughes wine and instantly became super fans! We received a combination of 3 varietals and love all that they have to offer but have become especially drawn to their Cabernet Sauvignon.  This has a mix of  blackberry and black cherry fruit, espresso bean riding waves of powerful, mocha and chocolate. You can expect a full-bodied, richly textured blend, with perfectly grained tannins.  If you like red, I think you will love the Cameron Hughes Cab Sauv.

The other varietal we had the privilege of trying was their Pinot Noir! The Pinot is much lighter than the Cabernet Sauvignon. This Pinot is described as having a mix of rose petal and earthy black cherry, plum and brown baking spice notes with hints of pepper.  So many beautiful flavors in this blend and has such a smooth finish! My guests will love this one at Thanksgiving this year!  Did I mention that this bottle is only 15.00!

Lastly, we received the Chardonnay varietal.  Chardonnay is always a win in my book!! This one is no exception! The Cameron Hughes 576 Chardonnay is a combination of  honeysuckle, pear, and apple gains, papaya and orange. Seriously DELICIOUS! Definitely a robust wine! I cannot wait to share this one with family around the holiday’s this year.  Although I had mentioned that the Cab was my favorite, I truly love all 3 varietals! Perfectly done and the price is amazing.  This bottle is only 14.00!

On to our Fall Picnic! Ben and I have been in an extremely busy season in our lives.  For the past few months we have had at home date nights because we are gone so much and we love the simplicity of hanging out at home.  Not to mention, we hate being away from the kids in the evenings if we can help it.  At the same time we know the importance of setting aside time for ourselves and actually going out and doing something! When I told Ben we are doing an outdoor picnic for a little date he thought I was crazy but ended up loving the idea.  Sipping wine, eating yummy treats and just chatting out in the middle of no where was so peaceful and refreshing! I know that not everyone lives in 65 degree weather right now, but if you can get away for a simple outdoor date, I think it’s worth it.   Something about the Fall crisp air and one on one time is really good for the soul.

    I’m so envious that you live near the California Wine country. My husband and I love visiting there and exploring new wines. We haven’t tried Cameron Hughes but it sounds delicious. I’ll add it to our list of new wines to try.
