IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

The 2013 Chardonnay Reserve offers an enticingly fresh, perfumed nose of creamy golden apple and Asian pear fruit mingled with intriguing beeswax, mineral and toasty oak scents. Fresh and lively on the palate with deeply concentrated, layered flavors of yellow apple, white peach and melon, the wine boasts a long, lingering finish showcasing mouthwatering lemon curd and mineral tones. While this intense, beautifully structured chardonnay is impressive now, it will gain further richness and complexity with another 5-7 years of aging.
This wine shows creamy, yeasty, butterscotch, ripe peach and yellow apple fruit aromas, with nutmeg and cinnamon spice notes from the aging in French oak barrels. With full-bodied, round, rich and creamy-lush apple, peach and creme brulee flavors on the palate, the wine displays refreshing mineral traces, and a long, lively finish with bright acidity and a hint of citrus zest. This structured, sumptuous wine should age for another 5-7 years in bottle.
Pair with salmon, swordfish, veal and light pork, bouillabaisse or cream bisques.
Over 30 years ago, Jack Cakebread came to photograph the Napa Valley for a book and while there, he casually mentioned his interest in one day owning a vineyard to some family friends who had a ranch in Rutherford. When he returned home that afternoon, the phone rang and it was the family friends offering to sell their property. He headed back up to the valley that same afternoon to make his best offer, and Cakebread Cellars was born.

\nAs the Cakebread family reflects upon the many profound changes in the wine industry over the last 33 years, such as innovative farming techniques and new methods of reaching out to consumers, they note that their key values have remained the same. Dedication to making the highest quality wines and a commitment to family has followed a continuum as their first small vineyard has grown into a thriving internationally distributed wine company.
