cakebread sauvignon blanc 2021 750ml
Tasting Notes & Food Pairings:
The wine opens with vivid tropical aromas of white flowers, ripe melon, and sweet citrus. The citrus and tropical characters extend onto the palate with ripe guava and crisp pink grapefruit, balanced by bright acidity and accented by a flinty vein of minerality. This is a zesty wine that stands up well to shrimp, crab, and grilled vegetables and is perfect for a cheese plate!
We seek out sauvignon blanc grapes from top-flight vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including, from south to north, our own estate ranches in Carneros, Suscol Springs, Rutherford, and Calistoga. The cooler, windswept southern reaches of the valley give us sauvignon blanc with bright citrus characters, flinty minerality, and balanced acidity, while the warmer northern sites bring out tropical notes. Blended together, these vineyards showcase the range of expression sauvignon blanc achieves across the region's finest growing areas.
The 2020 growing season started off warm and dry. Mild conditions in spring were ideal for bud break and early growth, while steady summer temperatures, with cool mornings and warm, sunny days, ripened sauvignon blanc grapes to perfect flavor and balance.
Surpassingly fresh, vivid aromas of white flowers, ripe melon and citrus fruit introduce rich, zesty flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and guava, leading to a long, crisp finish buoyed by bright acidity and refreshing citrus and mineral tones. Irresistible upon release.

"Apricots, lemon curd, apples, yogurt and custard on the nose. Some white grapefruit. Medium- to full-bodied with crisp acidity and a creamy palate. Drink now."
