Say what you will, but these guys do the ripe, buttery Chardonnay well.

Citrus and melon on the nose, with nice lingering finish and heavier mouthfeel than the younger Chard. Aged 15 months in French Oak.

There are very few white wines that I would drink with any meal; even fewer Chardonnays that I would drink at a party over a red wine. Then there is Cakebread's Reserve Chardonnay! Hands down my favorite white wine ... Any variety, region, or price. I actually prefer it room temperature like an aged Bordeaux, not chilled like other whites. Buttery, elegant, balanced, and crisp ... Just perfect. Bring this bottle to a party and you will have instant credibility for as a oenophile. Worth the $!!
