2011 Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon

April 1, 2016 - Norman Bentley
#13-16-PIE

We recently had old friends visit us at the "Little Cottage by the Sea" and brought us a wonderful present, a bottle of 2011 Cakebread Cabernet. Cakebread has been long time favorite, especially for special occasions, and there is nothing more special than a visit from old friends, so we sat down and enjoyed it together. All I can say is Wow!

This wine was mature for its age and opened with a distinguished nose of violets, cherry, and a whiff of chocolate. Like most Cakebread Cabs it contained a massive presentation of fruit highlighted by black cherry, blackberry and black raspberry. There was a slight presence of spicy currant which flowed into a mild and smooth finish with mellow tannins in the background. Norm's score is 91.

This Cakebread Cab would serve well with an array of grilled meats, or could be served as a compliment to itself as a stand-alone treasure.

price: $70 - $85

score - 91
