Tasting Notes: "Bright, super-fresh aromas of sweet citrus, melon, guava and white flowers introduce pure, vibrant flavors of grapefruit, guava, gooseberry, fleshy melon and white peach, with a refreshing minerality invigorating the wine’s long, crisp finish. Arguably one of Cakebread Cellars’ best-ever sauvignon blancs, this Napa Valley classic will age gracefully for the next 3-5 years."


Winemaker Notes - "The Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from top vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including Estate ranches in Carneros, southeastern Napa, Rutherford and Calistoga. The superb fruit from these sites produces a rich, complex Sauvignon Blanc that is simultaneously fresh, crisp and zesty. The outstanding 2015 vintage blends 90% Sauvignon Blanc with 6% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Musqué, an especially aromatic clone of sauvignon blanc. Grapes are harvested during the cool nighttime hours to fully capture their fresh, pure flavors and bright acidity. Whole-cluster-pressing of the fruit maximizes varietal intensity while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins. In 2015, 80% of the juice fermented in stainless steel tanks and 20% in neutral French oak barrels, a regimen producing a deep, vibrant expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine aged five months in neutral French oak barrels before bottling and an additional three months in bottle before release."
