Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Cakebread was well-received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a faint grapefruit and lime bouquet with a hint of apple blossoms. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and round. The flavor profile is a mild mineral and gentle grapefruit blend with hints of lemon-lime. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. The Panel thought this Sauvignon Blanc would be a very good glass pour option. This Sauvignon Blanc is versatile and food friendly. We would suggest pairing it with swordfish skewers or breaded scallops. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker 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, vegetable and salad dishes.
