Usually an underrated wine and usually the reason for many suprises. Mostly cakebread wines are favored for their whites but when the patron samples the reds from this consistent Napa powerhouse, they are in for a great suprise. I blame it all on reputation for consistency and smart sourcing of fruit in the valley.
The 2009 napa cabernet Rated 90 points by Wine Spectator has
Creamy vanilla-tinged oak cloaks dried currant and berry fruit, graphite and crushed rock, firming nicely on the finish. A true to form Cakebread Cabernet. Drink now through 2024."
