Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Reserve bottle

2011
Chardonnay Reserve

Carneros, Napa Valley

PRICE 55.00

To purchase, call or send us an email.

Our sumptuous 2011 Chardonnay Reserve offers creamy, complex aromas of lemon custard, ripe golden apple and white peach, complemented by subordinate notes of jasmine, buttercream, light yeast and oak toast. Round and creamy on the palate, with deeply concentrated peach, apple and melon flavors, the wine picks up zesty citrus, spice and mineral tones in the long, elegant finish. This big, beautifully balanced Chardonnay is delicious now, but it will handsomely reward another 5-7 years’ aging.
