"Taste: Lot 273 is a vibrant full-bodied wine with crisp acidity. Aromas of crushed flowers, sultana raisins, brioche and lemon zest round out this delicious wine. With a touch of minerality and this framing acidity, this wine shows classic Chardonnay structure with California nuances. Cameron Confidential: Arroyo Seco is one of the best places in California to grow Chardonnay. This vineyard has been growing Chardonnay since the 1960’s. Planted to three Dijon clones and two proprietary clones, this vineyard boasts a line of grapes originally selected for it’s intense varietal character and low yield. The cool growing season and the deep gravelly soil ripen the Chardonnay perfectly, creating a natural balance of sugar and acidity." Best 2011-2015
