Region California, Napa Valley, Carneros
Brand Cakebread
Alcohol/vol 14.1%
Seductive, slightly floral aromas of creamy golden apple and honeydew melon, with complementary scents of crème brulee, yeast and mineral, preface a lush, full-bodied palate offering intense and expansive melon, peach and apple flavors accentuated by fresh, perfectly balanced acidity. The wine's long, elegant and focused finish showcases bright, apple-y flavors with hints of citrus, mineral and oak spice. This delicious and complex Carneros Napa Valley chardonnay is enjoyable now, but will gain further complexity with another 5-7 years aging. Ideal with salmon, swordfish, veal and light pork, bouillabaisse or cream bisques.

Brought up in 35% new French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Reserve offers a more rich, buttery style that carries plenty of apple-like fruits, white currants, and honeyed citrus aromas and flavors. It's nicely textured, has bright acidity, and a clean finish.

Barrel fermented, this robust white tastes of freshly cut pear, brioche and toasted oak, with a side note of baked apple. With a steely finish, it exudes richness through the midpalate, with hints of nutmeg and vanilla.
