Over 30 years ago, Jack Cakebread came to photograph Napa for a book & bought a vineyard, Cakebread Cellars was born. I always liked Cakebread’s wine offerings, Chardonnay is no exception, consistent quality year/year. This was an early harvest showing aromas of green fruits, citrus & honey scents. On the palate complex flavors of apple, melon & lemon zest, balanced with good acidity & great mouthfeel. Lingering finish ending with sweet mineral spice. Nice now but a few years in cellar will benefit.

One of the only California chardonnay that I truly love. Gorgeous, balanced, easy on the oak.

Don’t drink Chardonnay? Then drink Cakebread Chardonnay. No butter... all flavor and nose. Fruity, crisp, lingering, and absolutely delicious.

During the party I would have given this an 8.9. But as leftovers 2 nights later found in the back of the fridge... it brought on deeper dimensions of key lime pie etc. delicious.
