Cakebread Chardonnay 2001
from Napa Valley, California
Cakebread Cellars' 2001 Napa Valley Chardonnay has a light straw color with a glint of gold. Its aromas are reminiscent of green apples and the faint scent of apricots. There is also the clean scent of mineral that some tasters would describe as being "flinty." On the palate, the flavors closely resemble those of the aromas, but with a very slight buttery finish as well as the subtle hint of vanillin from the French oak in the background. The wine has good depth, with an ideal balance of fruit and crisp acidity. A fresh, silky finish completes what we believe is an outstanding Napa Valley Chardonnay.

A Customer - Wilmington, DE
I am a server at the Columbus Inn in Wilmington, DE. We are DiRona award winning restaurant, the only one in DE. I served this Cakebread 2001 Chardonnay on 9/15 and was able to taste some that was left in the bottle by the guests. The smoothness of the wine is the first thing that you notice, the vanilla and light fruit taste are excellent. The only negative would be some overpowering oak lingering in the wine. However, I think this is an excellent chardonnay.
