Santa Barbara remains one of my favorite winegrowing regions to score gems, and with good reason – as both a wine consumer and industry insider, I think the quality-price ratio here is simply outstanding. At the moment, there might not be any wine producing region in California that delivers better value per dollar.
Lot 675 comes to us from a historic property that's home to one of the early pioneers and elder statesmen of Santa Barbara’s wine industry, crafted by a top winemaking team using grapes sourced from Bien Nacido (widely considered the best vineyard in the entire Santa Maria Valley). Aged in French oak Burgundy barrels before bottling, this is a terrific Chard from a perennial winery of the year candidate that exhibits pure class at an unbeatable price!
will buy again!
Took me a while to find a CH chardonnay that I loved -- this is it!
Great Apple and pear notes up top with a smooth buttery slightly oaky finish. The finish on this wine is the star of the show. Looking forward to drinking my other bottles I order from CH
Very smooth Chard
My wife and I enjoy the nice flavors of fruit. The price is right also.
Lovely light Chardonnay at a great price!
Good price for a week night
Enjoyable. Not huge but good balance. Not too much oak. A bit on the lite side. Just pay attention to what you pair it w/. Good lite Chard.
I am from this area and enjoy these mid bodied wines. Good balance, just the right amt of oak w/ a hint of citrus. Buy it you will like it.
Very good Chardonnay
A light Chardonnay, with hints of apple & pear. Great wine for a great price.
This Chardonnay is getting older and the flavors are getting flatter, more tired and uneven. Still a good value but tastes like its on its way out. My previous orders of this wine were rewarded with brighter and more distinct flavors.
Has an interesting flavor to it. Not bad.
Great Santa Barbara chard. My personal preference for CA chards is from Santa Barbara county and this wine is an example of why. Still California-buttery, but well balanced and a bit restrained. Creamy texture was a bonus.
