Cambria Chardonnay Bench Break Premier 2006
Santa Barbara County is a quiet sanctuary of golden hills and well-groomed vineyards located three hours north of the glitter and bustle of Los Angeles. This is the place we call home. For more than 20 years, we have produced estate grown Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah from our benchland vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA of Santa Barbara County. Welcome to Cambria.
External Reviews for Cambria Chardonnay Bench Break Premier
Green-tinged yellow. Poached pear, apple and melon aromas are given depth by smoky lees. Pleasantly bitter flavors of ripe orchard fruits and toasted grain pick up a sweet note with air. A plump, inviting style of chardonnay that finishes with lingering spiciness.
This is a big, fat, unctuous Chardonnay marked by exceptional ripeness and smoky oak. Yet it never loses sight of balance. Itrsquo;s powerful in candied or pie-filling pineapple jam, Mandarin orange zest, apricot brucirc;leacute;e and vanilla custard flavors that are completely dry and accented with crisp acidity. This is an amazing price for a wine of this quality. Sommeliers, buy this beauty by the case.
