Cakebread Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016
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 AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay opens with notions of lanolin, honey toast and cedar with a core of spiced pears and apple butter. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers appealing freshness with uncomplicated fruit and an oaky finish.
