This classic Napa Chardonnay gets its creaminess from extended barrel aging on the lees. Aromas of golden apple, and white peach balanced with fresh acidity. Medium bodied, the palate has great poise and finesse. Finishes long with toasty vanilla. This is a delicious bottle that oaky Chardonnay lovers should always have on hand.
Neither a cake, nor a bread. The winery got its start when Jack Cakebread took an unassuming trip to wine country to photograph the area for a book. Within a few days, Cakebread Winery was already taking shape. It’s been a wild ride over the last forty years for the valley pioneers. Visitors to the winery with an interest in wine as a part of healthy living are on the upswing. While times are ‘a changing,’ the winery’s premise remains unshakable; to produce memorable, food friendly wines that speak of their distinctive terroir. Visitors to the Rutherford estate experience the wine, and if they are lucky, a glimpse of Dolores Cakebread’s famed gardens. This is where the good life was imagined, and here it’s eagerly shared.
