Napa Valley Chardonnay 2018

This is a very nice Chardonnay from Napa Valley. Well-balanced and easy drinking.

Showing citrus, lemons, apples, pears, light spices, minerals, oak and light vanilla.

Showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity.

This is a nice surprise as it is not too much in your face kind of wine, which is what I expected.

Will age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

I had it by the lake. Delicious all by itself.

Aged in French oak barrels (33% new) for 8 months.

13.7% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Good but not surprisingly not the best for the price. Smokier than preferred but still smooth and earthy. Would try again. Maybe a later vintage. — 10 days ago

Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Lovely wine. Not a ton on the nose, but delicious. Some weee getting a funky taste on the finish. I didn’t. Paired this with a Cakebread reserve Chardonnay to compare styles. — 18 days ago

Vaca Estate Vineyards Red Blend 2016

Got this at Cakebread in Napa in February 2020 for about $45. (Their tour is amazing and they're so nice there.) This red blend is just so balanced and enjoyable. Some earthy, some berry flavor. Great with grilled steak and chocolate. — 9 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Dark robe with plums, tobacco and herbs notes. Really good cab that is not overdone and has lots of charm. Probably better in 4 or 5 years but very drinkable already. — a month ago

Dominus Estate

Napanook Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Nice woody, dusty nose. Dark burgundy color. Slightly reminiscent of Cakebread but not as good or powerful. Overall, underwhelming for the price. — 16 days ago
