Editorial Reviews for Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard
Tight and sandy on the nose with hints of hay, vanilla and toasty oak covering a core of sour apple and pithy citrus fruit with a sweet gingery edge. Moderately big and soft in the mouth, though showing good clarity to the fruit which is zesty and bright. Lime tinged flavors of crisp apple and pineapple flow across the palate with a nice veneer of wood spice following. This gains some caramel tones on the backend before fading away on the slightly spicy and dry finish that shows apple peel fruit flavors. Big yet simple if fresh and easy to drink. 86pts
Rich pear fruits and flowers in the aroma, with pineapple. The mouth is quite buttery, with a sparkling acidity on the finish.
We are not usually into Chardonnay because they are usually too woody and lacking in fruit but our friends had us sample this one & we really liked it. :-) Shouldn't we get our Route 66 Trophie now?

So elegant and sophisticated, this is a great value in California Chardonnay. Although it's dry, it's rich and delicious in pineapples, pears, mangoes and honey, with an opulent overlay of sweet oak. The brisk acidity is balanced, and gets the mouth ... Wine Enthusiast. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Cambria Chardonnay Katherines Vineyard 750ml
Pale yellow. Ripe pear, melon, vanilla and clove on the fragrant nose. Picks up a tangy citrus zest nuance with air, which gives vivacity to the pliant orchard fruit and honeydew flavors. The citrus quality adds lift and cut to the slightly bitter... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Cambria Chardonnay Katherines Vineyard 750ml
Cambria Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay is sourced from their Santa Maria Estate, and is has extremely lavish aromatics, pear, pineapple, butterscotch, caramel, and sweet vanilla bean.
Bright with citrus, apple, peach, and vanilla aromas. Rich, mouthfilling flavors of grapefruit, citrus blossom, white peach and sweet oak lead to a crisp finish with a lasting impression of spicy oak.
This cool-climate wine needs a warm vintage to show its best, and it certainly got heat in 2004. The result is a big, opulent wine with masses of tropical fruit flavors slathered in spicy oak. Yet it retains crisp, citrusy acidity, and has an elegant streak of minerality.
Cambria Katherine's Chardonnay is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown on the estate in northern Santa Barbara county. Close proximity to the Pacific Ocean gives the vineyards a long growing season. This wine reveals pineapple fruit and the finest balance of butter and oak I have yet found in a California Chardonnay. The buttery finish is very pleasantly prolonged. To achieve the full taste, do not drink this wine too cold. Please take it from the fridge and let it warm a little at room temperature. Enjoy as it passes your lips, and you will repeat with me when I say: "Kiss me Kate!"
Rich and extracted, with pineapple tart filling, butterscotch, caramel and smoky flavors. Feels a bit soft, and the oak sticks out.
Named after owner Barbara Banke’s eldest daughter, Katherine’s is a blend of different blocks comprised of both old clone Chardonnay and cutting edge plant material. Each of the 34 blocks of Chardonnay, planted in sand and granite soils, are farmed on an individual basis and the expression from each block is wholly unique. The resultant wine is the sum of this diversity, a Chardonnay with a spectrum of fruit flavors ranging from mango to meyer lemon and a rich texture framed by refreshing natural acidity.
