Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant berries, cassis, and cedar on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Finishes with strong tannins, currants, and herbs
In my experience, Cakebread Napa Cab always has a beautiful bouquet and this is true with the 2006. However, overall the wine doesn't seem to really come together as well as expected.
The good news for Cakebread fans is that this wine has not doubled in price over the past five years like some others. It should run you about $65. Raise a glass to to price flattening!
