Food Pairings for Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Carneros Reserve
This is as superb a wine as a Chardonnay can be with aromas of clarified butter and sharp citrus. The okay bouquet is not as pungent as normal oaked Chardonnays, which makes this wine all the more intriguing. On the palate there is a fullness to this wine, which gives it a creamy texture without being too heavy. Deliciously intensive with sweet fruits of ripe apple and nectarine. This Chardonnay is heady decadence and absolutely my type of chardonnay with a long, lingering finish that adds a distinct dryness to the tongue and makes you want more.
This is one of my favorites. Very sweet finish that lingers on the pallet. Sweeter the more you drink.
Great chardonnay. Even better on an expense account.
Oakey nose, rustic and creamy. Great Carneros style chardonnay, rich, creamy and complex. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 3/10/10
Oak and apples on the nose. Crisp, starchy fruits. Nice acidity. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 8/5/09
I rarely drink white wine, but Cakebread does a really good job with this Chardonnay. It is bold enough for a red wine drinker to enjoy, especially when it's hot outside. I love this wine paired with grilled fish or spicy cajun seafood dishes.
Cakebread Cellars chardonnays are always a favorite. i will stock up on them every chance i get.

Boasts vivid, beautifully delineated sweet apple, melon and citrus aromas with hints of ginger and white peach layered with toasty, creamy tones from barrel fermentation and sur lie aging.

Smooth and creamy, with lots of spice, hazelnut, nutmeg and subtle green pear and apple notes. Medium- to full-bodied, clean and refreshing, even delicate on the finish.
