The bouquet opens with intense aromas of lemon, mineral, caramel apple, and a touch of fresh butter. Entry on the palate is a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, lush experience, with rich waves of white fleshy fruit, butter, and lemon oil dancing on the palate long after the finish. Stylistically a hybrid of California and Burgundy, this is a sublime expression of Chardonnay that white wine lovers will adore.

Flavors: Butter, Lemon, Mineral

Cam Confidential

Antonio Galloni, Vinous:
"Once again, I came away deeply impressed with the wines I tasted during my annual visit to the Santa Cruz Mountains. Rugged hillside sites and an extraordinary range of microclimates confer tremendous personality to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and red Bordeaux varieties. There is little doubt the finest Santa Cruz Mountains wines are world-class in every way."

From the same family-owned winery and winemaking team with over 25 years of experience that produced our "liquid silk" Lot 564 Pinot. Crafted with every bit as much precision and deftness as its Pinot counterpart, this Chard is produced from old vines bathed in abundant spring fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean, and was barrel fermented in French oak barrels. Made in a style that's undeniably California + Burgundy, this is the best of both worlds, and I was very happy to get access to this wine.

Sold under the original label for just under $40/bottle, this is an exceptional value here at $15.
