Cakebread Chardonnay Reserve, Carneros, Napa Valley

About This Wine

Our 2014 Chardonnay Reserve offers seductively fresh, creamy aromas of golden apple and Asian pear fruit nicely complemented by characteristic notes of crème brulee, vanilla and mineral. Rich and full on the palate, the wine reveals a core of deeply concentrated spiced apple, melon and citrus flavors that maintain their intensity throughout a long, mineral-tinged finish. Our cool-climate Carneros vineyards provide ideal conditions for cultivating world-class chardonnay. Boasting deep reserves of fruit coupled with exemplary balance, our 2014 vintage e is delicious now, but will age beautifully in bottle for another 5-7 years.
