Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Carneros Reserve 2009
Our 2009 Napa Valley Reserve Chardonnay delights the olfactory sense with beautifully ripe golden apple, citrus and tropical fruit aromas, complemented by seductive scents of buttercream, yeast and mineral. On the palate, the wine is wonderfully lush and mouthfilling, with rich, creamy, spiced apple, peach and melon flavors; yet, it is also wonderfully fresh, focused and balanced, reflecting the cool 2009 vintage. With deeply concentrated fruit and vibrant acidity, this luxurious Napa Valley Chardonnay will age beautifully in bottle for another 5-7 years.
Cakebread Cellars is located in the heart of the Napa Valley on Highway 29 between Oakville and Rutherford. Family owned and operated for 36 years, we pride ourselves on making full flavored, balanced and elegant wines.
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.
