Cakebread Cellars Reviews: 2007 Chardonnay Napa Valley
2008 Chardonnay Napa Valley
The 2008 Chardonnay possesses lots of lemon oil, citrus blossom and nectarine characteristics, but no evidence of wood. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, this beauty can be consumed over the next 2-4 years.
Robert Parker gave the 2008 Chardonnay Napa Valley 90 points.
