Cakebread Cellars on Snooth

  • Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Carneros Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This is as superb a wine as a Chardonnay can be with aromas of clarified butter and sharp citrus. The okay bouquet is not as pungent as normal oaked Chardonnays, which makes this wine all the more intriguing. On the palate there is a fullness to this wine, which gives it a creamy texture without being too heavy. Deliciously intensive with sw... Read More

  • Cakebread Zin Red Hills Lake Cty 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This smells ripe and oaky with alcoholic heat on the nose. Soft in the mouth and sort of formless, this delivers modest cherry berry fruit in a loose style with a finish that is dominated by grainy, papery wood tannins. Out of balance and unattractive. 70pts Read More

  • Cakebread Cellars Pinot Noir Carneros 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I had this as part of a Cakebread tasting that I won! Yeay! This smells a little toasty and of cabbage. Light like a Pinot usually is, the balance was a little off with a lack of acid. The savory pairing of turkey with stuffing definitely helped bring out the juiciness of the wine, making it more flavorful alone. It was as if it just needed a pi... Read More

  • Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This was part of a Cakebread tasting with food pairing. This was a wonderful wine with an intense note. This smells young with good hints of spice, plum, cantaloupe, fresh jam and earthiness. Plush and juicy, this full bodied layered wine had flavorful notes of boysenberry, dark berries with soft tannins along with some wood. Great balance with ... Read More

  • Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley Reserve 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I had this as part of a Cakebread tasting with food pairing that I won! This was a wonderful chardonnay. It was toasty and smells like fresh butter. Lightly oaked, it was silky creamy smooth although it had a slightly bitter end. The sad part is that the food pairing of mango salsa salad was not that good. The red onion a little over powering an... Read More
