    Mature, with graceful herb, beet and red berry flavors that are complex and softening; drinking nicely now, with smooth tannins and a savory, dried-berry aftertaste. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now. 20,000 cases made.

    This attractive, open-knit Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, a forward, pleasant bouquet of cedar wood, black currants, cherries, and earth, supple tannin, and a savory, medium-bodied, well-balanced personality. Its up-front charm and forward fruit suggest consumption over the next 7-10 years is warranted.

    Delicios in aromas, beautiful in palate, delicious in mouthand a little, very little short on finish. Medium-full body. Lot of finesse here, balance and not over power.

Over 30 years ago, Jack Cakebread came to photograph the Napa Valley for a book and while here, he casually mentioned his interest in one day owning a vineyard to some family friends who had a ranch in Rutherford. When he returned home that afternoon, the phone rang and it was the family friends offering to sell their property. He headed back up to the valley that same afternoon to make his best offer, and Cakebread Cellars was born.Over the last 33 years, their key values have remained the same. Dedication to making the highest quality wines and a commitment to family has followed a continuum as their first small vineyard has grown into a thriving internationally distributed wine company.
