Food Pairings for Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
At $61 per bottle at Cakebread, this wine is worth it. Smokey, light start and bold finish.
91 points. The nose on this wine is lush and spicy. I get lots of peppered black currant preserves, a bit of concord jam, some pretty intense rose wood, and a nice touch of something floral. There is some dark stone, some very light vanilla cream, and just a touch of butter as well. This wine opens very sweet, ripe, and rich with tons of creamy, almost jammy, blackberry and black currant tones. I then pick up on a bit of dried fruit, some coffee and cacao powder, and some fragrant wood aromas. The finish ends on just a hint of forest floor and menthol. This is a really rich, lush, smooth, and complex wine. It has exceptional balance of really intense fruit and firm, gripping tannins, and it feels very refined and elegant. Clearly well made, and definitely an example of Napa Cabernet done right. I think the price is a little steep at just shy of $70, and I could see buying this wine at $50-55, but if you are looking for an elegant, nicely structured Napa Cabernet that you don’t mind paying a little more for, this could be a wine worth trying.

Pleasant nose with mixed fruit. On the palate some cherry tones and some dark fruits with a touch of oak. Very refined and nicely structured. A wonderful finish. I think this wine can go with or without food.
this was good, but not as good as other Cakebread wines i've enjoyed before.
Very elegant cab. Lots of fruit but balanced with some smoke and spice. Definitely worthy of pairing with a top notch steak
Love it....Love it.
External Reviews for Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
A savory, dry, herbal and earthy youngster, taut, full-bodied, with dried currant, mocha and cedar notes that turn drier and more tannic. Needs decanting. Best from 2011 through 2017.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is among the finest "regular" Cabernet Sauvignons I have tasted from Cakebread. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, stunning purity, subtle notes of smoke, black currants, blackberries, spring flowers and toast, good acidity and ripe tannins. This full-bodied yet graceful, deep, silky Cabernet Sauvignon is already irresistible, but it will provide provocative and complex drinking for 15-20 years. This benchmark winery has again turned out some impressive wines.
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.
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 t
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
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
Fresh, deeply concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, dark cherry and wild blackberry fruit, with whiffs of cocoa, earth and mineral adding dimension. On the palate, the wine's focused blackberry, cassis, cherry, plum and dark chocolate flavors persist and expand throughout a long, fruitful finish, with mineral tones adding length and refreshment. A big structured wine, with full firm tannins, bright acidity and a core of intense fruit, this exceptional Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will profit from up to a decade of bottle aging.
Our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with fresh, smoky, cassis, blackberry and boysenberry aromas augmented by subtle cedar, black tea spice and sweet oak scents. Supple on entry, the wine’s big, extracted, black fruit flavors coat the palate, while its firm underlying structure transports the rich fruit and zesty black tea spiciness into a long, savory finish. Impressive now, this concentrated, yet elegant Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully in bottle for another 5-7 years.
