Cakebread Chardonnay 2016
Enchanting floral and golden apple aromas introduce pure, concentrated melon, white peach and lively citrus flavors complemented by hints of vanilla and mineral. Rich and full-bodied, yet elegant and finely structured, the wine boasts a long, refreshing finish highlighting spiced apple and mineral tones. Delicious now, this classic single-vineyard, cool-climate Napa Valley chardonnay will develop beautifully in bottle for another 3-5 years.
The Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay represents the Napa Valley like few other white wines, and it is priced quite well for the quality. The 2016 vintage is a top performer. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rich, layered, and rewarding. Its aromas and flavors of ripe Golden Delicious apple and subtle oaky notes pair it well with a lobster in a cream sauce.
