Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley is known the world over for fine cabernet sauvignon. Vineyards here are blessed with a great diversity of soils and microclimates and express their distinct personalities through remarkable wines. We blend our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from special spots throughout the region, including the renowned cab appellations of Rutherford and Oakville, which impart classic Napa Valley bold fruit intensity, as well as the warmer Calistoga area to the north and the cooler southern reaches of the Suscol watershed, which contribute layers of complexity and depth of flavor.
91 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 2 % Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
Clusters were hand sorted and destemmed. Partial crush gave us optimum extraction of color, flavor, and tannin from the grape skins.
