WINE REVIEW: Cambria Estate Winery 2019 Chardonnay ‘Katherine’s Vineyard’, Santa Maria Valley,

Updated: Apr 30

Santa Barbara Co., CA ($22)


by Andrew Chalk



Cambria Estate Winery is a family-owned winery run by Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke’s daughters Katie and Julia. They exploit the calcareous soils and fog-swept hills to produce bright, rich, opulent, but still taut, chardonnay.


Appearance: Deep gold;


Nose: Tropical fruit led by mango and pineapple. Peaches. Yellow apples;


Palate: Weighty mouthfeel. Confirmation of the fruit, peach particularly prominent. Phenolic backbone adds an additional facet. Medium acid keeps the wine lively. Big fruity finish;


Good value.


Winery is Certified Sustainable.
