One sniff and sip of our 2015 Napa Valley Chardonnay is all that’s required to recognize the exceptional quality of this fine wine. The nose offers vivid, creamy aromas of green and golden apple, pear and citrus with supporting scents of beeswax and mineral. Full-bodied and vibrant on the palate, with bright, intense, apple, citrus and melon flavors, our top-rated 2015 vintage is remarkably persistent on the palate, culminating in a long finish showcasing pleasing spice, yeast and mineral tones. Released soon after bottling, it will hit its stride after 6-8 months and reward 5-7 years’ aging.

July 12, 2017 – Very fine quality, this is a full bodied, complex, crisp Chardonnay with excellent depth and balance. It is long on the finish, and tastes of pear, lemon peel, peach, honey, vanilla, and spicy oak. Cakebread’s best ever version of this wine. Can be aged further.
