Wine Details

Features a gorgeous nose of peach, honey, and guava, with hints of lemon oil and banana. The aromatic backbone is a honeyed beam of acidity that runs through the palate, carrying intense flavors of honeysuckle, vanilla, and tropical fruit. Mouthwatering buttery texture and a long lush finish make for an absolutely scrumptious wine.

Our perennial best seller (except for 2011, when we were unable to get a drop) is back and it is drop dead gorgeous…I believe our best yet, but at least certainly on par with the fantastic 2009 Lots 238 and 280 Arroyo Seco Chardonnays (same sourcing). Possesses all the impact of the 2009s but with better purity and complexity.

White peach and citrus with slight buttery honey.
For this price it doesn't get any better

This was my favorite chardonnay of 2013—easily the best of CH's several Monterey County Arroyo Seco offerings. I wish only that there were more, but there are likely to be more wines from this area in the future as several of CH's best chardonnays have come from this area.

I have never been a fan of Chardonnay, but this one has made me a convert. I like it because there is just a slight tart taste that appeals to me. Glad I decided to take Cam's advice to try it.

If you like buttery Chardonnay, you will love this one. Compares to LaCrema. Have bought several cases so far.

Really impressed with the overall quality of this chardonnay. This coming from a almost exclusive red wine drinker. Great job!!

This is a very rich, creamy, buttery Chardonnay with a little bit of oak. This is a wonderful Chardonnay at a very reasonable price.

While I'm usually more than satisfied with CH wines, Lot 402 was a disappointment. I detected no buttery, smooth texture at all. Just the opposite. It tastes more like an inexpensive French chardonnay.

This is the best 2012 California style chardonnay we have had so far. Ver rich, buttery, slightly oaky and very well balanced. Drinks better now than the '12 Rombauer Napa at twice the price.

If you want a great drinking chardonnay, this is it. Smooth buttery taste with great fruit flavors.
