Cam Confidential

Oakville Chardonnay is not easy to come by and our acquisition of this wine underscores the massive glut of chardonnay from the 2009 harvest. Our 2009 Oakville Chardonnay was sourced from on of Napa’s largest farmers (managing over 2000 acres) that also happens to own a custom crush facility. They made the wine from perfectly ripe fruit brought in long before the rains that tortured Cabernet growers later in the season. To be honest, we don’t know a lot about the vineyard that we can tell you without giving away the name but who cares, the wine is great!
