Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The wine opens with vivid tropical aromas of white flowers, ripe melon, and sweet citrus. The citrus and tropical characters extend onto the palate with ripe guava and crisp pink grapefruit, balanced by bright acidity and accented by a flinty vein of minerality. This is a zesty wine that stands up well to shrimp, crab, grilled vegetables and is perfect for a cheese plate!
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.
