Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Sizable, tightly woven tannin wraps itself around black fruit with moderate acidity in this thick, tangy wine, which has 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot within the blend. Given less than two years in French oak, 60% of it new, it's an approachable, enjoyable wine that will also age.
Smoky, toasty oak tilts from mocha toward charcoal, providing a taut framework for the dry tannins and savory dried berry flavors. Drink now through 2028.
