Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Fragrant boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, cassis and Mission fig aromas. The first sip of the wine reveals a big, boldly structured Cabernet with deeply concentrated black fruit flavors and intriguing dusty, loamy and mineral-y tones that add dimension and complexity. Boasting an undercurrent of soft, plush fruit that will emerge further with aging, this Napa Cabernet will reward another 5-7 years’ cellaring. 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator.

This was part of a Cakebread tasting with food pairing. This was a wonderful wine with an intense note. This smells young with good hints of spice, plum, cantaloupe, fresh jam and earthiness. Plush and juicy, this full bodied layered wine had flavorful notes of boysenberry, dark berries with soft tannins along with some wood. Great balance with smooth finish. It is no wonder they are known for their Cabs. Delicious pairing with Tri-tip and mashed potatoes which was like yin and yang of fat and tannins.

Spicy and cedar-like aromas of cassis and dark berries. On the palate, cassis and a hint of chocolate.

Oak dominates this wine, with toasty charcoal aromas and flavors. The underlying wine seems pretty simple, with blackberry fruit flavors. Doesn't seem capable of aging, so drink up. - S.H.

The first sip of the wine reveals a big, boldly structured Cabernet with deeply concentrated black fruit flavors and intriguing dusty, loamy and mineral-y tones that add wonderful dimension and complexity.

Creamy vanilla-tinged oak cloaks dried currant and berry fruit, graphite and crushed rock, firming nicely on the finish. A true to form Cakebread Cabernet. Drink now through 2024. -JL Wine Spectator.
