I’ll make this simple. Our first release today, Lot 280 2009 Arroyo Seco Chardonnay is the same wine as our best selling Lot 238 Arroyo Seco Chardonnay (we often split larger Lots for marketing purposes) that just scored 90 Points in Robert Parker Jr.’s Wine Advocate with the following review:
“The 2009 Chardonnay Lot 238 is a strikingly pure beautiful wine laced with bright varietal fruit. It shows terrific textural richness, beautifully integrated oak and classy balance from start to finish. This is an impressive showing, not to mention a fabulous value. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.”
Like Lot 280, our next release also comes from a partner winery and while it is not the same wine, it is the follow-on vintage from the same vineyard that produced Lot 217. Lot 270 2010 Russian River Sauvignon Blanc ($11) has a striking nose of grapefruit, melon and white flowers that is fresh and elegant. Brilliant acidity balances with bright fruit for a wonderfully balanced texture and an overall fantastic wine.
Both of these wines are available at chwine.com. So please don't hesitate to email our great customer service team or feel free call us at 1-800-805-1971, where we're always happy to help you pick out a few lots that we guarantee you'll like.
