Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc 2004
from Napa Valley, California
Cakebread Cellars has produced Sauvignon Blanc since the 1975 vintage, and has developed a style of wine which has become a benchmark for this varietal. The vineyards from which the wine is produced are primarily in the Rutherford and St. Helena areas near the Cakebread property, as well as the 20 acres of vines within the Cakebread estate. The warm microclimates in these areas allow the grapes to mature without excessive growth.
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. Refreshing and lively fruit acids with hints of mineral, gooseberry, melon and grapefruit all contribute to this wine's overall crisp impression. The wine's lovely fruit intensity and subtle vanilla oak notes carry into the clean, persistent finish.

From the first sip, this wine will surprise you. I love Cakebread's Chardonnay, but they have really out done themselves. Serve it to guests and watch their eyes light up. Great as a gift even for friends that aren't big wine drinkers. Great with shrimp and pastas - avoid pastas with white sauses, a lighter sause is a must to really appreciate.
