Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The startlingly fresh, vivid aromas of our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc literally leap out of the glass, redolent of just-cut white grapefruit, bracing gooseberry, lime and kiwi, and ripe honeydew melon, with subordinate spice and vanilla scents. On the medium-bodied palate, the wine's ripe grapefruit, guava, melon, green apple and mineral flavors are remarkably rich, intense, concentrated and vibrant, with a long, full finish packed with fresh fruit and mineral/chalky (a la White Bordeaux) tones. This is our 38th vintage of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, and it's a doozy, unquestionably one of our best. Savor it over the next 3-5 years as an ideal apèritif wine and with your favorite salad, seafood, poultry and pasta dishes.

A fresh Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc that opens with bright lime, kiwi, grapefruit and melon aromas. Good complexity with balanced acids and a medium bodied palate. A fine accompaniment to salads, seafood and light poultry dishes. Cakebread's Website
