Cameron Hughes Chardonnay Carneros Lot 127 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Classic Carneros styling on this wine with judicious new oak and 100% malolactic fermentation. If you like Rombauer Chard, give this wine a try. Fresh cut pineapple is framed by sweet vanilla, mango, and toasty oak in a luscious mouthful of wine. Citrus and honeydew notes rise up to carry the wine through to a creamy finish. Classic Carneros Chardonnay! Cameron Confidential: Last summer we were invited to visit one of the facilities in a recently formed marketing group for several wineries in the Napa/Sonoma area. There we were shown about 10 wines and suffice it to say we bought everything they put in front of us, ranging from Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Atlas Peak Cabernet to Alexander Valley Meritage. EVERYTHING we bought were finished bottling blend, simply excess wines above and beyond where they saw their sales projections and all ready to go right into the bottle. Go into the bottle they did this Fall.

Big and sweet on the nose packed with tropical fruit, fairly light oak, spearmint, lime leaf, and cream. Deceptively light bodied in the mouth with a nice fresh feel and light, transparent flavors of apple, pineapple and creamy spice flavors. Finishes with a strong burst of fresh fruit and surprisingly good length. There’s a touch of heat but nothing offensive. 89pts

Creamy, acidic, citrus aromas with some solid heat. Flavors are buttery, but have plenty of lemon and even some rounder fruit flavors to back them up. Oak showing through on the finish.

Popcorn-like and bestows a visceral joy like a beef patty at a delicatessen. Some interesting fruits like pear and pomegranate, with a buttery polish. This wine has earned its place in the exclusive league of the Yummers™ collection.

Soft on the nose. Acidic and grainy in the mouth with a long finish of pears and spice. All in all extremely complex and enjoyable.
