Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, 2017 (750ml)Winemaker's Notes
Surpassingly fresh, vivid aromas of white flowers, ripe melon, and citrus fruit introduce rich, zesty flavors of pink grapefruit, melon, and guava, leading to a long, crisp finish buoyed by bright acidity and refreshing citrus and mineral tones. Irresistible now, this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc will age gracefully for the next 3-5 years and beautifully accompany seafood, poultry, vegetables, and salad dishes.
Blend: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 6% Semillon, and 4% Sauvignon Musque

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "COMMENTARY: For decades, Cakebread has been one of the "big" names in Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs. The 2017 vintage lives up to its reputation. TASTING NOTES: This wine is sleek and nicely balanced. Its aromas and flavors of dried herbs, ripe melon, and grapefruit prime it perfectly for a pairing with simply prepared shellfish.
