Cakebread CAKEBREAD CHARDONNAY 2015 2015
This Napa Valley Chardonnay offers fresh, lovely pear and ripe Granny Smith apple aromas with supporting mineral, baked bread and baking spice scents. Full and richly textured on the palate, the citrusy crisp, spiced-apple and pear flavors are enriched by yeast and toasty oak tones that extend into a very long, rich, minerally finish. Youthfully compact, with superb structure and an ideal balance of fresh fruit, acid and wood tones, this beautiful Napa Valley Chardonnay, one of Cakebread's very best, should develop in the bottle for another 3 to 5 years.
Wine SpectatorFans of pure, tart, flinty Chardonnay without oak will find this alluring. Zesty acidity keeps the flavors lively. Drink now. 20,000 cases made.
