Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A beautifully fragrant nose of ripe pomelo apple honeydew melon lime and mineral with little of the herbaceousness that sometimes characterizes the variety. On the fleshy full-bodied palate ripe melon grapefruit kiwi and lemon-lime flavors lead to a long flavorful finish enlivened by bright mineral tones. ?Ç£Golden?Ç¥ and ?Ç£sun-kissed?Ç¥ are words that pop to mind when sipping this delicious Sauvignon Blanc which makes both a wonderful aperitif and a delectable companion to simply prepared seafood poultry and vegetarian entrees.

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 refreshing, lean, herbal style, with citrus, green apple and pleasant fresh grassy notes. Drink now.

Vivid pink grapefruit and mineral aromas. Delicious citrus, green apple, and melon flavors and a mouthwatering kiwi fruit finish.

Concentrated and ripe, with very good intensity to the fig, melon and vibrant lemon-lime flavors that pick up minerality on the focused finish. Drink now.

Loaded with ripe, intense lemon, peel, green apple, fig, grass and vanilla flavors. Intriguing spice notes and concentrated fruit flavors linger on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

This blend of 93% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Sèmillon and 3% Viognier displays a light straw color as well as an expressive nose of minerals, citrus, and waxy notes. Flavorful on the palate, with medium body, excellent purity, and a lively zesty personality, this complex, floral, spicy, melony, mineral-dominates Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years.

Distinct and intense, with pronounced mineral, green apple, ripe fig and pretty floral flavors. Melon and citrus flavors linger through the finish.
