This classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a complex bouquet of ripe blackberry and boysenberry complemented by notes of dark chocolate and toasty oak. The fragrant and sumptuous dark fruit is balanced by fresh acidity and lush tannins with a lingering, elegant finish and a hint minerality . Rich and smooth on the palate, e njoy this wine now, with everything from braised short rib to grilled portobello mushrooms or lay the wine down and watch it continue to develop complexity in the bottle for years to come.
Neither a cake, nor a bread. The winery got its start when Jack Cakebread took an unassuming trip to wine country to photograph the area for a book. Within a few days, Cakebread Winery was already taking shape. It’s been a wild ride over the last forty years for the valley pioneers. Visitors to the winery with an interest in wine as a part of healthy living are on the upswing. While times are ‘a changing,’ the winery’s premise remains unshakable; to produce memorable, food friendly wines that speak of their distinctive terroir. Visitors to the Rutherford estate experience the wine, and if they are lucky, a glimpse of Dolores Cakebread’s famed gardens. This is where the good life was imagined, and here it’s eagerly shared.
