Blend of 88.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.2% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot, 1.1% Syrah, .5% Petite Sirah, .5% Malbec & .5% Cabernet Franc, aged for 17 months in 55% new French oak, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, oak and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and currants with tobacco and herb spice. Fine smooth lush tannins, approachable, long finish ending with fruit, oak, spice and herb mineral character. Nice!

Got this magnum myself at Cakebread cellars about 7 years ago. Great to finally open it for an Xmas party. Full bodied, enjoy it, but not “omg”.

Delicious cab. Chose this for my valentine. Glad I did. Opens up quickly, beautiful cassis and red fruit notes. Light tannins, but structured enough.

This beautiful wine is already quite evolved. Inky in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon by Cakebread begins with aromas of anise, mocha and red bell pepper with wild blackberry. The palate shows good balance and weight with black tea, anise, mocha and sandalwood flavors. This shows good intensity and elegance. Drink 2018-2028- 91

Very enjoyable and met expectations. Tannins are sharp, fruit is medium long on the finish. Needs a few years to mellow out.

Felt past peak, all tertiary flavors, but like two of them. Kind of a disappointment. From magnum.
