Cakebread Cellars / Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 / 750mL
This lush yet focused wine expresses elegant black cherry, plum and cassis fruit offset by notes of chocolate, herbs and cedar with a supple texture and a structure of balanced fruit and tannin confirmed on the finish.
The Cakebreads show their commitment to quality through their years of family teamwork, their stewardship of the land, their care in growing and vinifying individual lots of grapes for each wine and their public programs for healthy living. The result is a world-class winery that crafts distinctive wines and welcomes dedicated visitors year after year.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, aged for 17 months in 56% new French oak. Very deep purple-black colored, it has a pronounced nose of creme de cassis, blackberry tart and warm mulberries with touches of Chinese five spice, camphor and tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features loads of black fruit preserves, framed by chewy tannins and great freshness, finishing with a compelling herbal lift..October/2019
