Cakebread Napa Valley Chardonnay Reserve
Fall brings out the bakers in us: the combination of “sweatuh-weathuh,” spices, and a natural slowing down of the season is just irresistible for our comfort-food cravings. Plus, I’m ready to turn on the oven: I don’t know about your small Brooklyn apartment, but mine has no central AC, and a hot oven in 90 degrees in the summer is about as appealing as stepping in something sticky on a New York City sidewalk. This Napa Valley Reserve Chardonnay brings to mind one of fall’s greatest baking hits: pies! Especially apple pie. With its smooth texture, rich body, and creamy, lush flavors of apple, peach, and baking spices, you might even consider trying a slice of pie with a glass of it.
