Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc 2021
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented 78% in tanks, 22% in neutral barrels and 0.4% in concrete eggs. It is composed of 99% Sauvignon Blanc with splashes of Verdelho and Viognier. The nose opens with pretty white peaches, fresh Golden Delicious apples and pears scents with hints of dill seed, bouquet garni and white pepper. Medium-bodied, it features a refreshing backbone supporting the vibrant apple and pear flavors, finishing with an herbal lift.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is well done, if not a touch innocuous. Ripe citrus and honey notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, balanced, and lengthy on the palate. Drink it over the coming couple of years.
