Wine Review: This Chard from Cakebread tied for second place in our Big Blind tasting. It is pale yellow colored and opens with a very attractive mild melon and bees wax like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, beautifully balanced, and velvety. The flavor profile is a tasty mild apple and vanilla blend with a hint of banana and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and pleasant. The panel suggested pairing this Chard with fettuccini alfredo. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our 2007 Napa Valley Reserve Chardonnay boasts fragrant sweet apple, ginger and melon aromas with complex, accompanying scents of citrus zest, mineral, vanilla cream, yeast and toasty oak. On the full-bodied, beautifully structured palate, the wine delivers succulent, deeply concentrated, creamy apple, melon, lemon-lime and peach flavors that persist throughout a long, bright, mineral and ginger-laced finish. With great reserves of fruit, vibrant acidity and perfectly balanced oak tones, this luxurious, cool-climate Napa Valley Chardonnay makes delicious drinking now, but will handsomely reward five to seven years of cellaring.
