(2006 Vintage) Cakebread Cellars' Napa Valley Chardonnay is light straw in color with a glint of gold. Its aromas are reminiscent of green apples and the faint scent of apricots with a clean scent of mineral suggestive of flint. These impressions are repeated on the palate with a very slight buttery finish and a subtle hint of French oak vanillin in the background. Good depth with an ideal balance of fruit and crisp acidity lead into a fresh, silky finish.

Wine Spectator(2014 Vintage) Shows a strong, pithy lemon peel bitterness that subsides a bit but dominates the core fruitiness. Drink now. 30,000 cases made. -JL
