Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Dancing Bear Ranch 2004
Tasting Notes Our fresh, vivacious 2007 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc opens with bright lime, kiwi, grapefruit and green melon aromas, with complementary hay and mineral scents adding complexity. On the sleek, medium-bodied palate, the wine offers zesty citrus and melon flavors that culminate in a refreshingly flinty, mineral-tinged finish. An ideal apèritif wine, our vibrant 2007 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc also makes a fine accompaniment to salads, lighter seafood and poultry dishes, and vegetarian entrees. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
Cakebread Cellars is located in the heart of the Napa Valley on Highway 29 between Oakville and Rutherford. Family owned and operated for 36 years, we pride ourselves on making full flavored, balanced and elegant wines.
External Reviews for Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Dancing Bear Ranch
True to its mountain provenance, our Dancing Bear Cabernet Sauvignon boasts intense, complex, high-toned aromas of Bing cherry, brambleberry and spicy dark plum fruit mingled with enticing floral, sage, tobacco, chocolate, earth and mineral scents. Incredibly pure and focused on the palate, its beautifully structured wild cherry, ripe fig, spicy black fruit and dark chocolate flavors reveal a pronounced minerality in the wine’s long, persistent finish. Delicious now with grilled steaks, venison, and hearty stews, this wonderfully rich, complex, chiseled mountain Cabernet Sauvignon will handsomely repay long-term cellaring.
