Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Opens with fresh, creamy aromas of ripe pear, apple and citrus, with light butter, yeast and spicy oak tones adding complexity. The wine's rich, focused, green apple, melon and guava flavors are nicely balanced by fresh acidity and a piquant mineral tone. Both mouthfilling and elegant, this wine is delectable now, but it will develop even greater complexity with another 5-8 years' bottle age.

This 2006 Chardonnay displays lovely ripe pear and sweet citrus aromas that are lifted by fragrant white flower and subtle toasty oak scents. The palate has a sleek entry that leads into a creamy, concentrated mid-palate with rich lemon zest, melon, white peach and vanilla flavors that segue into a refreshing flinty and mineral-tinged finish.

The 2011 Chardonnay Napa is a citrusy Chablis-like effort displaying lots of freshness, lemon and tangerine oil notes, medium body and no evidence of oak. Drink it over the next several years.
