Wine Details

A gorgeous amalgam of ripe mango, honeysuckle blossom, blood orange and butterscotch on the nose. The wine's lively high notes are balanced by a full-bodied, unctuous palate and a honeyed beam of acidity that exhibits why Arroyo Seco is such a special place for growing Chardonnay. Rich, ripe, lush and perfectly balanced…If you like the style of Rombauer or Talbott Chardonnays, you are going to love Lot 476!

Cam Confidential

This is the 5th year of our most popular Arroyo Seco Chardonnay program, and with this vintage I sought to go back to a deeper, richer, more tropical style; something that's more in line with the fantastic 2009 vintage. 2014 was another winner of a harvest (our third in a row, but I’ll not venture to curse ‘15) with near perfect ripening conditions, replete with warming and cooling trends that allowed for extended hang-times and a relaxed, pick-it-when-its-perfect crush scenario. 60% of the fruit was barrel fermented in new American oak, the remainder in stainless steel.

Just found a left over bottle of this in my cellar and poured a glass. This is still one of the best wine values around. Just what I like, (my favorite is Rombauer) the big fruit and outstanding finish, and a nice buttery taste. Can't wait to try the new Arroyo Seco Chard., Lot 576 that I just ordered, hope it is just as good. This Chardonnay is an outstanding value!

For us, this is one to keep in the fridge to break out after another day at work. Good value white. Not the most complicated and nuanced wine, but I did not find this wine to be over oaked at all, and I could have actually used more butter. But hey, that's just us - we drink white with crab and want buttery and oaked. For other fish, we generally break out a pinot.

I absolutely love this wine. The balance is perfect. I was having a bad day came home had a glass of this and immediately felt better. Some wines are so acidic but this was so smooth! Love, Love it!

I have to preface up front I bought this as an upgrade for my wife, who is quite content with "two-buck chuck" thank you very much. Not my favorite... but my wife did like it! Mission accomplished.

Another well balanced and drinkable now bargain from my Virtual Vintner of Choice. The only thing missing is to get CHW @ Costco on Northlake Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Cam invited to our home anytime he is in the area!

Always feel safe with CH wines, descriptions and price. 476 is no different. We enjoy both the richer Chardonnays as well as the tasty lighter ones. Just the right mix of fruit in this one.

subtle but rich. Nice oak but doesnt have that metal/sour finish that chardonnays often have.
