Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, 2020 750ML
Notes from the Winemaker
Surpassingly fresh, vivid aromas of white flowers, ripe melon and citrus fruit introduce rich, zesty flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and guava, leading to a long, crisp finish buoyed by bright acidity and refreshing citrus and mineral tones. Irresistible upon release.
Blend: 99% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% blend of Viognier/Verdejo/Semillon
Reviews and Accolades
93 Points/The Somm Journal
Ninety percent of this Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from estate ranches and vineyards in Carneros, Suscol Springs, Rutherford, and Calistoga, is aged five months in neutral French oak, while 5% ages in tank and 5% in concrete egg. Blended with 1% Sémillon, it’s aromatic, with scents of lemon and dill that lead to flavors of white flowers covered in melting lime sugar. There’s a pureness on the palate: The crystal clarity of the acidity and a wave of pink grapefruit and tropical fruit are heavenly
91 Points/James Suckling
Apricots, lemon curd, apples, yoghurt and custard on the nose. Some white grapefruit. Medium- to full-bodied with crisp acidity and a creamy palate. Drink now.
