Amazing wine! So buttery with a nice spice and citrus initial taste. This is my favorite white wine!! Expensive, but worth it!!!
What can I say? I'm a red girl who loves her Cakebread Chardonnay. It's probably my second favorite white wine. When it's 92 degrees and a red just will not do ... pull this baby out. It will not dissapoint.
This bottle is worth every penny! Superior chardonnay.
Best Chard by far and well worth its price! A bottle of regular Cakebread Chardonnay ($39) is a great also.

External Reviews for Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Carneros Reserve
This much loved and sought after Chardonnay is full of bright Granny Smith apple notes that marry with warm spice and a buttery texture. Take one home for a special occasion and see what all the fuss is about.
Wine Tasting NotesThis distinctive Reserve Chardonnay is light gold in color with a rich aromatic complexity suggestive of baked apple, vanilla spice and lemon with a hint of oak. On the palate, flavors of white peaches and ripe tropical melon are supported by a lively and engaging interplay of fruit acids. The finish is long and satisfying, accented by notes of vanilla.
This layered, complex wine is marked by intense varietal aromas of white, citrus and tropical fruits offset by spicy, toasty notes which are confirmed on the palate, supported by a firm structure and rich, buttery texture.
Serves up an appealing mix of earthy citrus, ripe pear and green apple flavors that are well-focused and unobstructed by oak. Finishes with a rich, clean aftertaste. Drink now through 2009. 25,000 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2005 Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Reserve 750ml
This rare reserve Chard is coveted for good reason- It’s creamy texture wrapped around luscious butterscotch, melon and pear flavors with a toasty French oak veneer. The grapes come from prime Carneros vineyards, planted with four select Chardonnay clones that flourish in the long ripening conditions of Carneros. Harvested at night by hand to insure they arrive at winery in pristine condition, the grapes are whole cluster pressed and then barrel fermented in French oak. The wine is then aged on the lees in barrel for 14 months before bottling. Usually, only available in restaurants, Wine Express has acquired a small quantity of this cult classic. Grab it while it lasts.
