2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

About This Wine

Our classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reveals aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry with hints of dark chocolate and sweet oak. On the palate, the dark fruit is balanced by fresh acidity and lush tannins that carry all the way over a lingering, elegant finish—with just a kiss of minerality. Enjoy this wine now, with everything from lamb burgers to filet mignon and fire-roasted portabello mushrooms—or lay the wine down and watch it continue to develop complexity in the bottle for years to come.

The 2019 growing season began with plentiful rainfall to fill the soils across the Napa Valley. Temperatures were cooler than usual which resulted in a longer harvest. Ample sunshine allowed the clusters to ripen slowly and evenly, showcasing fruit with its distinct varietal aromas and concentrated flavors.

Napa Valley is known the world over for fine cabernet sauvignon. Vineyards here are blessed with a great diversity of soils and microclimates and express their distinct personalities through remarkable wines. We blend our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from special spots throughout the region, including the renowned cab appellations of Rutherford and Oakville, which impart classic Napa Valley bold fruit intensity, as well as the warmer Calistoga area to the north and the cooler southern reaches of the Suscol watershed, which contribute layers of complexity and depth of flavor.
