Wine Details

Rich vanilla and tropical notes combine for a thrilling symphony of lush and lavish flavors, all carried on a honeyed beam of acidity…banana, clove, peach and pineapple with blossomy top notes and butterscotch bass notes. Lush and juicy on the palate with a seemingly endless finish, this creamy, beautiful wine will light up your palate.

Cam Confidential

Sourced from the fabulous Cold Creek Vineyard, Lot 449 is quintessential Los Carneros Chardonnay produced from Napa’s stellar 2013 vintage. The vineyard is of the highest pedigree and is a source for the biggest names in California Chardonnay, some of which recently scored 92 from the Spectator in the 2012 bottlings. The retail price on these wines? $30-$40/bottle. Aged for 14 months in a mix of 60% new Canton American oak and Budapesti Kadar Hungarian oak.

Very nice rich chardonnay. Better in 2016 than 2015. Outstanding butterscotch nose and taste. Best Chardonnay in quite a while from CH wines. I look forward to future years of this area.

This is a very good Chard, and everyone has their own likes/dislikes when it comes to buttery/oaky Chard's - Even tho this one is rated very high, and IS a very good wine, I (and my wife) prefer the 476 over this one. Love buttery/oaky Chards, but this one is a little too heavy on the oak flavor for us. But does not mean we would not buy it again.

We've enjoyed a number of Chardonnays from Cameron Hughes but this one is our favorite. Layers of complexity, smooth mouth feel, creamy and a nice finish. Quite a value! I wish there were more available.

Loved the butter oak. So sorry it sold out so quickly. Hope to find another like that!

Let me start by saying that I really do like oaky, buttery Chardonnays, but this one is just too much for me. The oak really overpowers the other notes.

Love your white's but this is not at the top of my list

Perfect showing of oak in an easy-drinking white that goes well with food -- or just by itself.

One of my favorite Chardonnays. Almost as good as the Arroyo Seco line. Purchased a couple cases at Costco. Found that you really need to chill this wine and let is rest for a few days before enjoying. I think the Costco handling may have been a little too warm and a little too rough. Drank some the first day and it tasted a little off. After a few days in the wine fridge I tried another bottle and it was excellent. If you try this wine, make sure you let it cool for a few days after it is shipped to you. Always best to let your wine rest for a bit before enjoying. :-)
