Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$64.99

One of CA's most popular Cabs               Cakebread Cabernet - One of Napa's Valley's Classic Cabs and the 2014 is one of the best ever. Fragrant boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, cassis and Mission fig aromas comprise the fresh, fruitful nose of the Cakebread Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The first sip of the wine reveals a big, boldly structured Cabernet with deeply concentrated black fruit flavors and intriguing dusty, loamy and mineral-y tones that add wonderful dimension and complexity. Boasting an undercurrent of soft, plush fruit that will emerge further with aging, this sophisticated, yet approachable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will reward another 5-7 years’ cellaring. Robert Parker: "..among the finest “regular” Cabernet Sauvignons I have tasted from Cakebread.

Great right out of the bottle (didn't need to breathe that long). A confident red with a floral bouquet.

Lots of black pepper on the nose. Dark cherry and baking spices on the pallet. Incredibly smooth and soft tannins. Big body!

Superbly balanced and textured. The wine opened up quickly after uncorking. So very rich and satisfyingly full. This one is on a whole other level. I know this is my favorite Cabernet Sauvignon of all I have tried. In my mind this is the benchmark against which all others Napa cabs are measured. Tread lightly as we are rapidly approaching wine snob territory after this one. June 2019: Had to revisit again for my birthday celebration. The 2016 vintage upholds the rich and lofty tradition. I will bump up the rating by a point. I would rate this a 10 but will preserve hope that I will one day meet its match.
