About This Wine

Our signature Napa Valley chardonnay is grown in the cool Carneros conditions that maintain excellent balance between fruit characters and acidity in grapes. We ferment and age this white wine in French oak barrels, and leave it on the yeast lees for months to enhance texture and complexity. Floral aromas mingle with fresh citrus, orange blossom, and white peach characters, and the palate is weighty yet balanced, with a mouth-coating texture and a clean, mineral finish.

The 1973 Napa Valley Cakebread Chardonnay was the very first wine we released, and we’ve been fine-tuning this famous classic ever since.
