I expect a lot from Cakebread and the 2005 vintage. This wine is good but not as good as I hoped. Typical Napa Cab. Lots of ripe fruit in the nose with some woodiness (cedar?) and smoke. Nice long finish and robust flavors but think this would be better in a year or two.

You will not be disappointed for certain!! Exactly what a 2005 calif cab should taste like - give it another couple of years and it will be perfect!! FYI 2004 was not as good - If in California take the time to visit - they are extremely accomodating and cannot offer you more - loads of fun too!

Oaky and spicy yet very smooth on the palate. We sipped this wine with dark chocolate chips and it was DIVINE!

This is a very full bodied wine. The color is dark ruby, as expected, perfectly clear and uniform. The nose is very 'oaky',has medium fruit - grape and plum, hints of peach and chocolate notes. The initial taste is sharp, medium tanins, great mouth feel, perfectly copies the nose. The follow-through is pleasant and lingers on the tongue and in the throat. This is a perfect wine for beef filet or anything with bernaise.

Another standout wine for Cakebread; as well as a graceful ager.

Our Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a fascinating melange of aromas, including ripe black fig, blackberry, cassis, caramel, and mocha. On the richly textured palate, the wine's intense black fruit flavors take on brambly spice, roasted coffee and dark chocolate tones, leading to a long, savory finish. Firmly structured and packed with layers of luxurious flavor, this lavishly endowed Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a treat now with grilled red meats and other hearty dishes, but will develop beautifully in the bottle for another 5-7 years

Wine Tasting NotesCakebread's Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is clear, dark garnet in color with complex, spicy, cedar-like scents and background aromas of cassis and dark berries. On the palate, the texture is rich and smooth with flavors reminiscent of cassis with a hint of chocolate set in a structure of balanced fruit and tannin. These flavors are confirmed on the finish, which is marked by rich, ripe fruit and discreet impressions of oak and spice.

Tightly wound, with firm, concentrated loamy currant, anise, black cherry and spicy, cedary oak, giving this a pleasant range of flavors, depth and complexity. Best from 2009 through 2014. 18,000 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

This attractive open-knit Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dark ruby/purple color a forward pleasant bouquet of cedar wood black currants cherries and earth supple tannin and a savory medium-bodied well-balanced personality. Its up-front charm and forward fruit suggest consumption over the next 7-10 years is warranted. Tel. (707) 963-5222; Fax (707) 963-1067 Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
