Wine Details

Lot 475 has a ripe nose of honey drenched mango, coconut oil, and vanilla with a kiss of jasmine. The nose leads into a supple mouthful of rich tropical fruit and butterscotch. Pitch perfect fruit and and balanced acidity. Scrumptious. multi-dimensional, with wonderfully high-toned freshness and tropical fruit resolving in a lush, buttery finish. In a word: Brilliant.

Cam Confidential

This is one of our best-selling white wines, ever. Barrel fermented in new American oak with full malolactic fermentation, this style of Chardonnay suits the Arroyo Seco sub-appellation of Monterey County to a T. While 2012 was a fantastic comeback for this wine (since frost decimated our chances in 2011), 2013 is even better than 2012, and as good as the vintage that put us on the map with Arroyo Seco: 2009.

When I first tasted this I was in heaven - I could definitely taste its oaky and buttery goodness, things I find hard to find in Chardonnay these days, but which remind me of the Australian ones I was weaned on years ago. I bought a case, hoping the flavor would deepen with time, but oddly they seem to retain tropical freshness over time rather than become more full bodied (I should have paid attention to Cam's "drink by 2018!"). I know that is what most people like - the French burgundy style over the heavy Australians. To each his own. But it makes me leery of jumping too quickly for the new Lot 576 from the same people. It's an excellent wine - hence my four stars - but just not my favorite profile.

We love the Chardonnays from Arroyo Seco. A great find when you compare to the better know very expensive Chardonnays here in the Napa Calley. I would always pick Cameron Hughes ! Keep 'em coming

As always, this Lot 475 did not disappoint. This is one of the
best Chardonnays I have ordered. All my friends love it, and I sure
hope it doesn't sell out too quickly as I think friends, as well as myself, will be reordering on this one.
I have yet to be disappointed with any order placed with Cameron Hughes.

Almost hate to give this one a good review. Every time I do, it sells out before I can buy more. But I was smart. I bought 2 cases before reviewing. Awesome wine!

Good value. Citrus and moderate oak. Consistent with price point and not off flavors or aftertaste.
