Cakebread Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016
Save $10.00 (15%)
Cakebread Napa Valley Chardonnay has lovely, perfumed aromas of fresh melon, yellow apple, lime and white peach, with complementary mineral and toasty-spicy oak scents. On the full-bodied, yet sleek palate, the wine offers concentrated, focused, peach, apple and citrus zest flavors, with mineral and spice tones on the long, refreshing finish. The grapes for Cakebread's Napa Valley Chardonnay come primarily from the valley's cooler southern regions, which stretch from the fog-chilled Carneros district to relatively warmer sites just north of the town of Napa. Blending fruit from diverse microclimates and soils allows them to craft a rich, ripe, elegantly structured Chardonnay that's delicious upon release. To ensure the wine's freshness, they pick all of their fruit at night, arriving at the winery in excellent condition.
