I’m not sure about you, but unfortunately I will not be in attendance of the 33rd Annual l’Eté du Vin ‘Gone Country’ that kicks off tomorrow (tix are a wee pricey for this cowgirl). However, that doesn’t mean that I can’t indulge in some excellent Cakebread vino. I first tasted this sweet nectar when an Aunt and Uncle who were fans starting bringing home crates for our Christmas Eve dinner. Last September, I got the chance to fully experience their Chardonnay in all its glory when we went out to their winery in Napa.
Tasting their Chardonnay, I FINALLY understood what people meant when they were talking about “butterscotch chardonnays”–this thing is like crème brûlée on the back of the throat. I like it not too chilled and they recommend serving it with some crab cakes, yum!
