Tasting Notes

New Price - A Steal! A rich, but not over-the-top Chardonnay from a prominent Napa Valley winery who has also made wine under our Kalinda label. Creamy and toasty with a fine core of acidity makes for easy drinking. For those who like a full but not too full-bodied Chardonnay. (Clyde Beffa Jr., K&L Wine Merchants Co-Owner)

    Another great, delicious drinking Chardonnay from a very famous winery. On the richer side of the spectrum but not overdone. Toasty vanilla oak aromas mix with apples and a touch of spice. Fairly full-bodied, this has a rich mouthfeel and balancing acid at the back end. Easy to drink right now and will cellar well for a couple of years. Swordfish would go well with it, but the wine could also handle a famous Sam's Chowder House lobster roll.

    K&L killed it with this one! Coming from a producer we all love and know far too well...but can't tell, this is classic Napa Chardonnay with its big burst of stone and citrus fruit, buttercream, and toast, but not burnt, just toasty, this is the perfect Cakebread for half the price! Take a bottle while golfing!

    Simply put, you could pay a lot more to get a wine of this quality and style! Definitely one for the lovers of bigger, richer more barrel influenced Chardonnay but for what is eschews in subtlety it more than makes up for with lashings of ripe fruit, toasty oak and a round creamy texture. A powerful wine that is certain to keep a lot of people happy without costing a fortune like some of its brand name kin.

    Rich apple and pear fruit surround the buttery rich texture and toasty oak notes. There is a solid core of acid in here to keep the wine focused and in balance. Definitely the best of its kind for this price.
