2017 Cakebread Chardonnay
2017 was one of the earliest vintages on record, and featured small clusters that delivered beautifully concentrated fruit aromatics and flavor intensity.
The nose offers vivid, creamy aromas of green and golden apple, pear and citrus with supporting scents of beeswax and mineral. Full-bodied and vibrant on the palate, with bright, intense, apple, citrus and melon flavors, the 2017 Napa Valley Chardonnay is remarkably persistent on the palate, culminating in a long finish showcasing pleasing spice, yeast and mineral tones. Delicious upon release, it will also reward 5-7 years’ aging.
