(Net Item - no discounts apply)

The Reserve is always a blend of the finest lots from Cakebread’s four estate vineyards on the Napa Valley side of Carneros. It’s a quintessential expression of cool-climate Chardonnay with concentrated, creamy flavors of golden apple, ripe peach and baking spice supported by a racy backbone of pitch-perfect acidity.

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.
