Reviews and Ratings

Our tasting started with Cakebread’s signature Napa Valley sauvignon blanc, 2009. It is a blend of 91 percent sauvignon blanc, 5 percent semillon and 4 percent sauvignon musque. The wine has the characteristic flavors of grapefruit, lime with a hint of guava and honeydew ... What is so delightful about this wine is the way that the oak whispers through fresh fruit flavors. It may be served as an aperitif... Source: Roberta Sabban, palmbeachdailynews.com

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
