About Cakebread 2018 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. Grapes come from top vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including, from south to north, Estate ranches in Carneros, Suscol Springs, Rutherford and Calistoga. The exceptional fruit from these sites produces a rich, complex Sauvignon Blanc that is simultaneously fresh, crisp and zesty. Grapes are harvested during the cool nighttime hours to fully capture their fresh, pure flavors and vibrant acidity. Whole-cluster-pressing of the fruit under anaerobic conditions maximizes varietal intensity while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins. In 2018, 78% of the juice fermented in stainless steel tanks and 21.7% in neutral French oak barrels and a small portion in a concrete egg. The wine aged five months in neutral French oak barrels before bottling in March 2019.


Decanter scored this 91 points saying "The scent of ruby red grapefruit opens the complex array of aromatics, followed by hazelnuts, a hint of talc and hot wet pavement. These follow on the palate, which is sparkly, zesty, citrusy, spritely and acidic."
