Food Pairings for Cakebread Chardonnay Napa Valley 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.

Great chardonnay. Even better on an expense account.
Oak and apples on the nose. Crisp, starchy fruits. Nice acidity. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 8/5/09
Oakey nose, rustic and creamy. Great Carneros style chardonnay, rich, creamy and complex. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 3/10/10
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.

A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2009 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.
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. Drink now through 2016. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2008 Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Reserve 750ml
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. On the round, streamlined palate, bright, creamy, apple, melon, pear, lemon-lime and mineral flavors gain additional richness from judicious toasty oak and yeast tones that prolong a lingering, gingery finish lifted by a refreshing minerality.
