The Midwest Wineguy
Cakebread might not be the oldest winery in the Napa Valley, but you can taste the attention to detail and commitment to quality in their wines. Their 2009 Napa Valley Chardonnay is a wonderful tribute to all Chardonnay! This golden wine pleasantly fumes of melon, peach, slate, citrus and toasty oak. Concentrated wonderfully textured wine with peach, citrus, baked apple, cinnamon and nutmeg against a long and tasty semi-sweet buttery finish. Score 92
