CAKEBREAD CELLARS 'NAPA VALLEY' CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CALIFORNIA 2018
Varietal: 88.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.2% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1.1% Syrah, 0.5% Malbec, and 0.5% Cabernet Franc.
Region: Napa Valley
Tastes Like: The quintessential Napa Cabernet - lush purple fruits (plum, boysenberry, huckleberry) with hints of brighter red fruits (strawberry jam), with dark chocolate and spicy oak notes.
Pairs With: Skirt steak in a chimichurri sauce, a mushroom tarte, beef stroganoff.
What the Pros Say: James Suckling - 91 Points "Ripe plums and blackberries with some coca-nib, vanilla, bread-crust and smoke notes. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, deep fruit and bright acidity. Tight and reserved, yet juicy, with a long finish. Approachable now, but better in 2022."
