The Camelot Highlands is perhaps my favorite of the Kendall-Jackson Chardonnays - and that's saying something. The 2009 has terrific intensity, with layers of tropical and citrus oil fruits touched by complex notes of nutmeg, straw, and butterscotch. Pitch-perfect balancing acidity makes it refreshing as well. Extremely fairly priced for this quality level. - HK 2011-10-27
