Cakebread's Reserve Chardonnay is a Napa Valley classic that has become a benchmark and is featured on the wine lists of many of the most celebrated restaurants in America. This crowd-pleaser deftly balances delicious, exotic fruit with a silky, elegant texture. The best news is that we have a small supply for the first few Porthos collectors who RSVP today. Note: Collectors beg us for this luscious Chardonnay all year long, but availability only lasts for a short time, so we recommend you secure yours before it's gone for another year. 

Winemaker Tasting Notes
“Our 2014 Chardonnay Reserve offers seductively fresh, creamy aromas of golden apple and Asian pear fruit nicely complemented by notes of crème brulee, vanilla and mineral. Rich and full on the palate, the wine reveals a core of deeply concentrated spiced apple, melon and citrus flavors that maintain their intensity throughout a long, mineral-tinged finish. Boasting deep reserves of fruit coupled with exemplary balance, our Chardonnay Reserve is delicious now, but will age beautifully in bottle for another 5-7 years.”
