Vintages Wine Panel: Cakebread, a pioneering Napa Valley family estate, has been an iconic name since their first vintage in 1973. Their highly sought-after wines continue to impress. The grapes for this Cab are sourced from prime vineyard sites throughout the Valley, from Calistoga in the north to the cool Carneros district at the southern end. Winemaker Julianne Laks blends in small amounts of Merlot (12%) and Cabernet Franc (1%) to round out and add depth to this classic Cab. Benefiting from a sensational growing season, the 2006 is packed with complex layers of blackberry, wild cherry, blueberry, and roast coffee, along with toasty oak notes and supple tannins. Enjoyable now but will benefit with 5+ years in the cellar. My note: A phenomenal Cabernet with classic styling and aromas of blackberry, cassis, blackcurrant. Balanced with a lovely long finish. Is it worth $99? Only you and your wallet can decide that.
