Cakebread Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Very fragrant nose of dark berries
Juicy palate with fruit layers, cedar and all kinds of other things emerging
Lengthy finish, youthful and ripe

For the $50 price range, this is a nice Napa Valley Cab. Although it may be a little ripe and fruity for some, it also has other exotic layers and an overall nice structure.

This was a crowd pleaser at a recent dinner I attended. The dinner host paid $117 a bottle and ordered three to circle the table while the runners were bringing the food out. I had my fair share! Raise a glass!
