Cakebread Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012
Wine SpectatorPure and clean, this is marked by zesty citrus, green pear and apple notes, presented in a tight formation and ending with snappy freshness. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe attractive 2012 Chardonnay reminded me of Chardonnays from the 1970s and early 1980s. The wine was aged in French oak for eight months, but you would never know that from the aromatics and flavors. With delicate, crisp citrus, this fresh, lively, Chablis-like effort reveals a hint of minerality. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
