Wine Details

Lot 415 shines with vivid notes of white peach, floral honey, lime, dried apricot, and crushed rocks.  Focused fruit and lavish texture conspire to deliver a long and sinuous mineral finish.  Splendid.

Lot # 415 Russian River Valley chardonnay was both a nice surprise and worth ordering a case at these prices -- but unfortunately SOLD OUT before I had my first sip.
Coming back when ?

Love your white and especially Chardonnay's - this is at the top of the list - only the Cam Collection 2013 is a tad bit better

This is by far my most favorite wine from Cameron Hughes. The oak is just right. Wish I could get more.

This chardonnay is one that I will buy by the case from now on. It is very nicely balanced and with a more subtle oak profile than other CH chards. It's a winner with the whole family, even those who not huge chardonnay fans.

Kris

Love this one--got the whole lemon curd, flinty thing going on, but the slight oak profile it's got going on too. Perfect for scallop recipes or any kind of rich shellfish dishes.

One of Cameron Hughes best Chardonnay's. Clean and crisp without too much sweetness.

Having tasted all of the Cameron Hughes chardonnays, the Russian River Valley chardonnays (most recently Lots 401 and 415) are the only ones that I now purchase. The Los Carneros, Arroyo Seco and Monterey chardonnays are much too robust and oak-driven for my tastes.

The Atlas Peak chardonnays have less oak than the others listed above but only the Russian River Valley chardonnays, with their tempered use of oak and their higher acidity, can be enjoyed with food.

At a list price of $15.00 bottle and often on sale for 20 percent less, I consider them a very good buy. I have purchased multiple cases of and I have not “tired of them” over time as I did with the Atlas Peak wines.
