Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

9.155 ratings on Delectable
$47.99

A perennial "Top 10" wine in fine restaurants across the USA, the 2014 Cakebread once again opens with vanilla, light butter, and cinnamon/nutmeg scents. Medium-bodied, the flavors follow the nose with the addition of ripe apple, melon, and bright citrus fruit. Bright and fresh with no heaviness. These guys have been on a bit of a roll the past few vintages, with very solid results.

Super smooth and drinkable. Low acid and some oak coming through.

Not much oak. Has pineapple and wet slate/minerality on the nose. Add lots of lemon/lime on the palate with an overtly acidic long finish. Good but I like a lot of others for the price.

Perhaps moderately overrated, nevertheless a nice drink. Buttery, with moderate acidity. Hint of toasted bread?

Subtle minerality, medium dryness and a hint of citrus. The nose is delicate, but I always look forward to that smooth and creamy finish.

Soft and very gentle. Lemon, crisp apple, light mineral, and yeast with acidity and structure but no bite.
