Cameron Hughes Chardonnay Russian River Valley Lot 130 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Lot 130 is a wine I am thrilled to tell you about, mostly because it is style we haven’t done much of: big, rich, buttery. Lot 130 Russian River Valley Chardonnay has that in spades but is well built over a gorgeous beam of minerally acidity that keeps it fresh and bright throughout. That beam is what makes the Russian River Valley so special - you can hang all that delicious fruit and creamy oak and keep the wine from getting fat or cloying. Like Lot 134, Lot 130 Russian River Valley Chardonnay has a screaming nose, redolent with rich tropical fruit, citrusy notes, and creamy butterscotch. The palate is full bodied yet crisp with spicy lemon and butterscotch flavors. Cameron Confidential: Just for its pure, lush, hedonistic nature, this is one my favorite CHW chardonnays. It does cost a buck more than our other RRV chardonnay’s but that’s because she’s go all bells and whistles.

Nice sweet pineapple notes on the nose. Pineapples really dominate on the mouth, there's some oak, and a sweet golden caramelized apple flavor, but the citrus is the leader here. Crisp and mineral with good use of oak on the finish. Very nice and, as always, well priced.

Lot 130 2007 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County - another great Cameron Hughes premium wine at under $14 bucks. Very nice! Pineapple and honeyed nose, creamy but yet nice acids with citrus flavors, grapefruit on the palate - not over oaked, long finish. Well-balanced. Deliciously paired with BBQ chicken basted with apricot-chipotle sauce. May be able to find Lot 130 at Costco for less. http://www.chwine.com/wine/lot/130/
