Chardonnay is a very versatile grape. Some of the very best examples of it can be grown from Chablis all the wwy south to the Macon. As Oregon is well regarded as one of the very best regions in the world to grow pinot noir, there's absolutely no doubt that great Chardonnay can be grown there.

2011 Cameron CE is already turning a bit towards amber, which is something that I've seen with other vintages over the years. Still tastes youthful, with perhaps a tinge of caramel accenting the normal pineapple and lemon. As always, great weight and intensity.
