2014 Cuttings Wharf Vineyard Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley


Cakebread Chardonnay Cuttings Wharf Vineyard

About This Wine

Bright, fresh and creamy aromas of ripe golden apple, citrus and melon, with complementary yeast, mineral and oak toast scents, introduce juicy, impressively concentrated flavors of ripe pear, yellow apple, peach and honeydew melon. Richly textured and nicely balanced by fresh acidity, the 2014 vintage culminates in a long, vibrant finish showcasing bright apple fruit, oak spice and refreshing minerality. Delicious now, this beautifully structured Carneros chardonnay will develop beautifully in bottle for another 3-5 years.

…from three special blocks in the vineyard to craft this bright, rich and charmingly complex chardonnay.
