2018 Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc

July 10, 2020 - Norman Bentley
#29-20-PIE

In the realm of white wine sales, Sauvignon Blanc is a distant third when compared to Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. However, for me, it may be my favorite, especially when it is one from California in the style of this 2018 Cakebread offering.

The nose is wonderfully fragrant with aromas of white flowers and stone fruit. The flavors abound, with peach, melon and apple in the forefront. There is a slight citrus breeze, supported by a hint of grassiness leading to a satisfying and refreshing finish, which begs for another sip. The alcohol content is 13.4%, and Norm's score is 89.

A bottle of Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc and a plate of Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops, with Angle Hair Pasta, was almost good enough to make the Chardonnay Queen forget about Chardonnay, but not quite.

score: 89

price: $27 - $33
