2008 Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

Wine Tasting Notes Our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of citrus fruit (grapefruit, lime), melon, guava, fig, white peach, minerals, and hay, with a faint hint of oak. In the mouth, the wine is full and rich, but refreshingly crisp, with impressively focused citrus, melon and peach flavors that culminate in a mineral-y, lime-zest finish. Delightful to drink now, this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc will blossom with an additional six months' bottle age and should be a pleasure to read more...Wine Tasting Notes Our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of citrus fruit (grapefruit, lime), melon, guava, fig, white peach, minerals, and hay, with a faint hint of oak.

    Bit more substance than a NZ SB. More buttery than expected. Enough acid to balance food. Some apricot on the nose along with hint of melon and kiwi.

    March 2011: Overly oaked. Nothing much to smell and the oak overpowered the rest of the wine. Ate with chicken.

    Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. This lightly fragrant sauvignon has the classic "cat pee on a gooseberry bush" character of the grape. It's a clean and tart wine to serve with pasta tossed with English peas.
