1998 Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

The 1998 Sauvignon Blanc is brilliantly clear with a very pale, light straw color. This lightness belies the wine's full fragrances and flavors. There are aromas reminiscent of mint, green kiwi fruit, and melon. On the palate, the Sauvignon Blanc's lively acidity carries flavors of tropical fruit, with hints of pineapples and, perhaps, ripe cantaloupes. There is a pleasant wisp of sweetness throughout this wine, with a note of butterscotch on the wine's finish.
