Wine Details

A complex, crisp white that bursts out of the glass with fresh-picked nectarine, melon rind, white blossom, and a lemon-flinty minerality that carries through explosively on the palate. Don't be fooled by all the fruit characteristics though, as this wine is bone dry and is done in a fantastic Rhône style that would please the most discerning Sauvignon Blanc fans.

Cam Confidential

A crisp, white wine with origins in Spain and most widely found in the Rhône region today, Grenache Blanc is a rarity among US plantings. I’m never one to pass up terrific quality at a good price (especially with a rare varietal like this), so it was an easy decision to jump on this gem from Santa Barbara.

Sourced from an estate whose first plantings date back to the early 80s, Lot 587 is a lively, resplendent white wine that Sauvignon Blanc and Arneis drinkers will find exceptionally pleasing. As with our Lot 588 (perhaps the best bang-for-your-buck California Cabernet you can find these days, I might add), Lot 587 is a delicious showcase of the range and quality that Santa Barbara wine country has to offer.

We bought a couple of bottles just to try it out, and were so impressed we bought more. For a frame of reference, our house sipping whites are New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, and this wine suits us nicely - crisp and fresh!

I took a chance not knowing what a white Grenache would be like...and loved it. I was afraid it would be fruity, but its lighter than I expected and quite crisp. I'm glad I did it.

A great change of pace. Good balance of crispness and fruit. Great to find this grape from Cam and at a great price. Have bought it twice (so far).

Wasn't sure what to expect from this one and so glad I tried it. Reminds me of a Sancerre than new world Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp and fruity without the over the top tropical that it seems NZ and US are all about now. My new CH favorite!

My wife likes her white wines light, crisp and fruity...but not too sweet. Lot 587 captured them all. Well done!!

Delightfully bright, crisp, acidic, and refreshing. Light, and pleasantly different. Bonus ABV. ;)

Crisp apple acid and fruitiness with length. My first experience with this varietal, similar to sav blanc but with more body.

Great medium body, solid citrus and pear fruit and good acidity--especially for an American wine. LOVED it! We get a really good Grenache Blanc from one of our favorite wineries in Los Olivos but at over double the cost of this. Highly recommend this for both quality and value!

Really didn't know what to expect since I've never had a Grenache Blanc. I really liked it. I liked the crisp freshness. Great for sipping on a warm evening. Definitely purchase again.
