Cameron Hughes Chardonnay Carneros Lot 124 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: The Los Carneros Chardonnay is a limited offering of truly exceptional Chardonnay defined by the San Francisco Bay region. The yield from these vineyards is limited by the lack of water and the cool extended growing cycle that both extends hang time creating exceptional fruit and acid while limiting fruit set due to the cool weather. This wine in many aspects is the closest Chardonnay California produces that compares to an exceptional Mersault. Amazing rich, silky flavors of ripe apple and honeysuckle melt with spicy new oak and butter on the mid-palate to form a wine with dramatic weight and enough acid on the finish to compliment food nicely. This is a wine that will age in the bottle for a good 4-5 years rewarding the patient with a myriad of flavors rarely experienced in a California Chardonnay. Cameron Confidential:

Lot 124 at Costco is only $10 bucks. It is a Napa wine with premium fruit and complexity. Crisp with nice acids, a little creaminess and hint of oak. A very nice wine for the price.

Flavor of nuts, oak. Note of toast, vanilla. Acidity is very mild. Good wine.

Being an Oregonian, I don't get to enjoy Cameron Hughes' Chardonnay very often. This time I came home with a case from Costco, and just tried the new lot 124. It is quite smooth with a hint of oak and a clean finish. It has a crisp taste that will be perfect for summer. When can we get your wine in Oregon?
