Nice fruit, moderate oak. Apple, citrus,nicely done.
Great, rich, butterscotch nose and taste
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.
Great fruit and good oak we really liked it.
Good But Not My Favorite
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!
Not my favorite
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
A repeat purchase. Outstanding value.
Perfect showing of oak in an easy-drinking white that goes well with food -- or just by itself.
Fantastic after it rests
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. :-)
