Day #244 of the year.

Cakebread Chardonnay Napa Valley

I got a crazy idea yesterday to make mussels. If you’ve read my other Daily Sips, you might have gotten the hint that I’m a queen of takeout and making microwaved baked potatoes. But I had this gorgeous bottle of Cakebread Chardonnay 2018 and it’s been whispering ‘drink me with mussels’. When the wine speaks, I must listen, so as directed, I steamed up mussels. Chardonnay and shellfish is a classic combination. While I don’t have full faith in my cooking abilities, at least I know that the wine is a guaranteed 10/10.

Tasting Notes

Bright, creamy, golden apple, white peach, pear and melon aromas, with hints of mineral, yeast and oak spice, introduce rich, full-bodied, apple, pear and melon flavors that persist throughout a lingering finish refreshed by vibrant citrus and mineral tones. Round, supple texture, superb concentration, great depth, and balanced acidity.
