2001 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

The product of a superb red wine vintage in Napa Valley, Cakebread Cellars 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderfully rich, ripe wine with a nearly opaque ruby color and a seductive aroma of ripe, lavish black cherry and currant fruit enhanced by cedar and toasty, vanilla oak tones. On the palate, the wine’s lush berry and cassis flavors are impressively broad and deep with supple, seamlessly integrated tannins and a lusciously rich finish.

    (From 2000 Vintage) 20% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc. As often seems the case for the Cabs of 2000, the aromas of this wine are nicely fruited, fairly deep and enriched with plenty of sweet oak spice. Once in the mouth, however, the wine proves to be ripe yet slightly hollow and lower in fruit than it is in oak. A little lean at the finish and never so rich as advertised, this is a pleasant but uncompelling wine whose reach exceeds its grasp.
