Cakebread 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley
A cult favorite, Cakebread Cellars has been turning out Napa Valley favorites for more than thirty years including this mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc. Whole-cluster-pressing of the fruit immediately upon arrival at the winery maximizes varietal intensity while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins In 2012, a superb white wine vintage in Napa Valley, they blended 87% Sauvignon Blanc with 9% Semillon (to enrich the wine’s mid-palate and soften its acidity) and 4% Sauvignon Musqué, an aromatic clone of Sauvignon Blanc that adds a bright, floral note to the bouquet. 18% of the wine was barrel fermented in older French oak. All of the wine aged for five months in French oak barrels to enrich its texture while maximizing varietal expression. Wine & Spirits Magazine scored this 2012 91 points saying “A tight, citrusy sauvignon, this opens to tart yellow cherry flavors as the fruit lengthens into the finish. It has a floral note of wild flower honey that recalls the sunniness of Napa valley. Clean and refreshing.”
