Food Pairings for Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
not Cakebread's best effort. A little too tart. The Chardonnay is killer though.
The Sauvignon Blanc is very pale gold, almost completely transparent in color. The first nose is sharp and a little offensive, a bit like cat pee that had dried out. Sounds awful right? Just give it a minute and it settles into an aroma of gooseberry tart and granny smith apples. On the palate it is again quite sharp and tart initially and then becomes a little smoother and quite mouth-watering with flinty, mineral tones. The wine is full-bodied and opens up into a plethora of fruits from melon to passion fruit and lemon and lime. It has a wonderfully long and gratifying finish. This is a spirited wine that should be enjoyed with friends and laughter and perhaps a light, fresh pasta dinner.

External Reviews for Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Fine and sleek, with tart acidity and mouthwatering flavors of citrus fruits, gooseberry, lemongrass and honey-vanilla. Blended with a little Sémillon and the Musqué clone and finished with a touch of oak, it's a rich, creamy interpretation of Sauvignon Blanc.
A mouthwatering acidity amps up the lemon-lime, guava and papaya flavors. A crisp, clean style, with a long finish. Drink now.
Cakebread’s interpretation of this wine is a classic expression of the varietal, with aromas of fresh pink grapefruit, mineral, and stone fruit. On the palate, the flavors mirror the aromas. Refreshin
Richer and more refined than in the past, this refreshing dry wine is dynamic in lemon and lime, fig and melon flavors leading to an amazing long, satisfying finish. It has a tingly acidity that's perfect for goat cheese and grilled veggies.
The Cakebread winery was started in 1973 by Jack Cakebread and their Sauvignon Blanc is one of their benchmark wines. Bright grapefruit, lime, and melon aromas lead to flavors of green apple, with a hint of minerals on the finish. This wine is a thirst-quencher.
Wine Tasting Notes Our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of citrus fruit (grapefruit, lime), melon, guava, fig, white peach, minerals, and hay, with a faint hint of oak. In the mouth, the wine is full and rich, but refreshingly crisp, with impressively focused citrus, melon and peach flavors that culminate in a mineral-y, lime-zest finish. Delightful to drink now, this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc will blossom with an additional six months' bottle age and should be a pleasure to drink over the next 3-5 years, especially as an accompaniment to seafood and poultry dishes.
