The nose opens with pretty white peaches, fresh Golden Delicious apples and pears scents with hints of dill seed, bouquet garni and white pepper. Medium-bodied, it features a refreshing backbone supporting the vibrant apple and pear flavors, finishing with an herbal lift. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

K&L Notes

For most people, the name Cakebread is synonymous with rich, buttery Napy Valley Chardonnay. But did you know they make a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc, too? Winery notes: "We craft our Sauvignon Blanc from grapes grown in top-flight vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including, from south to north, our own estate ranches in Carneros, Suscol Springs, Rutherford and Calistoga. The exceptional fruit from these sites enables us to craft a Sauvignon Blanc that is simultaneously fresh, crisp and zesty... For decades, we’ve harvested our Sauvignon Blanc grapes during the cool nighttime hours to fully capture their fresh, pure flavors and vibrant acidity. Whole-cluster-pressing the fruit under anaerobic conditions maximizes varietal intensity while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins."
