Another blockbuster from this Santa Barbara County winery. Rich, fruity and complex, with all the bells and whistles you could ask for. Shows why Santa Barbara has emerged as perhaps the leading Chardonnay region in California.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: This one may be a few dollars less pricey than its stablemate below, but we like its more open, fruity style and its mix of Meyer lemon, vanilla and chalky notes. Its flavors are delivered along with a pleasantly supple entry impression...GOOD VALUE.
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.
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.
A golden flash of light, this seems blank at first, its flavor clean and golden yellow. Looking closer, there's a kernel of fresh Chardonnay there, of brisk fruit and tight, fresh-picked corn. It rises above any direct description, and should prove intriguing to watch over the next year or two.
Concentrated and powerful, this is anything but your average California Chardonnay. In fact, it's a bit unorthodox, Burgundian in the sense of its orientation toward terroir expression rather than fruitiness or oak. Yes, the wood shows in scents of walnuts and exotic spice. And the fruit turns up the power with flavors of mandarin orange, accents of primrose and other floral notes. Yet the core of the wine seems to come from a melding of these elements, from a combination that plays as distinctly Santa Maria. There's a fine line of acidity to keep all the fruit toned and lifted, a balance that would carry its flavors with buttery escargots or grilled salmon.
Wine Tasting Notes A tribute to Cambria's consistent style and character, Katherine's Chardonnay is a lush, well-rounded wine revealing vibrant tropical flavors folded over hints of vanilla and pear. The finish is enduring, made memorable by notes of vanilla and oak spice.
