  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Fully mature, it exhibits a dense plum/purple color as well as notes of forest floor, licorice, black currants and Chinese black tea. Spicy and medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and an attractive, velvety finish, it is hard to believe this wine will improve any further, so why defer your pleasure? Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.

    Firm, intense and concentrated, with a mix of rich red currant, plum and black cherry fruit. Tannic and rustic, not out of line for a young Cabernet. 18,000 cases made.

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.
