This Chardonnay was light, fruity with strong pear and apple notes, and subtle oakiness that was brought out by time in glass and flavors in the meal. I enjoyed this chardonnay with prosciutto wrapped monkfish and the food/wine pairing was phenomenal.

    Delivers a beam of ripe pear, green apple, floral and spicy scents that are fresh, lively and full-bodied, ending with a snappy fruit and mineral edge. Drink now through 2016.

    Ripe and vibrant, with a mix of green apple, melon and pear fruit and a touch of light spicy oak. Still a bit raw, but bottle time will resolve that. Drink now through 2012.

    Jack Cakebread came to Napa for the first time 30 years ago to photograph, and subsequently fell in love with the region and the wine, and began making his wine. Granny Smith apple aromas and strong minerality and smokiness on the palate. Drink this now, or hold for 3-5 years for a delightful experience.

    Grown in Carneros (50 percent) and further north in the Napa Valley, this is a dynamic chardonnay with broad dimensions. It builds on a rich fruit flavor of cider apples, layered with chamomile and wheat. There's a satisfying length of flavor, seeming to incorporate the cool feel of a stonewalled cellar with the warmth of the autumn sun. Delicious now, this should gain more complexity with age.

    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.

    A crisp, flinty style, with peach, pear, anise and nectarine notes and little if any noticeable oak. Drink now through 2006.

    Clean and refreshing, snappy and vibrant, with zesty citrus, fresh quince and green apple notes. Drink now through 2012.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our 2009 Napa Valley Chardonnay boasts 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, beautifully focused, peach, apple and citrus zest flavors, with mineral and spice tones enlivening the long, refreshing finish. Delightful now, this purely delicious Napa Valley Chardonnay will blossom further with another six months in bottle and, with proper cellaring, will drink beautifully for another 3 to 5 years.
