2002 Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc
Our Sauvignon Blanc has an attractive light golden glint of color. Inviting citrus-like scents follow, reminiscent of freshly sliced limes and lemons, with a richer fragrance closer to that of sliced peaches, as well as a very slight fragrance of oak in the background. The wines impressions on the palate are very full and rich, but with an attractive mineral-like dryness throughout.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesIf a little light on fruity mass, this lean and lively wine shows the varietal stamp in its mildly grassy aromas, and its flavors follow with muted grassiness playing a supporting role to direct, fairly easy-going, very slightly candied fruit. A pleasant and eminently quaffable wine for drinking this year, it ultimately wants for a bit more depth and range.
