Pours a pretty, crystalline color that’s accentuated by pristine aromatics of honeysuckle blossom, white pepper, melon, and apple skins that leap out of the glass. Terrific tension and incredible structure on the palate complement the citrus fruit and chalky acidity. A clean, mouthwatering finish leaves you undoubtedly reaching for the next sip – or pour. An absolutely delicious, crisp wine that will be the perfect accoutrement to Spring and will be best shared with your die-hard Sauvignon Blanc friends.

Style: Light, Crisp

Cam Confidential

Literally meaning “little rascal” in Piemontese, this grape was named for its unpredictable ripening and difficulty to grow. Planted for centuries in Italy’s Piedmont region, Arneis has nowadays become quite fashionable amongst white wine connoisseurs and Italophiles alike. On this side of the pond, Arneis is primarily grown in Sonoma and the Willamette Valley. Lot 589 is an absolutely mouthwatering introduction to this delicious Italian grape.

Sourced from a winery in Carneros that almost exclusively produces small-batch releases, this wine was whole cluster pressed and fermented at low temperature in 100% stainless to maintain aromatic qualities and brightness of fruit. With over six months in bottle, this wine has come together beautifully, delivering a seamless transition from nose to palate.
