Producer Notes

Over 30 years ago, Jack Cakebread came to photograph the Napa Valley for a book and while here, he casually mentioned his interest in one day owning a vineyard to some family friends who had a ranch in Rutherford.

A classic cakebread in terms of a distinctive ripe fruit, earthy,leather and a smooth tannins frame, dense and dark so it's definitely a cabernet and a good one, ready to drink since couple years ago and shall drink good for another 2-3 yrs more.

Very balanced, still very fruity and full. Tanins are smooting out, and the wine is very approachable. Great to drink now, and over the next 12-18 months.

My first auction wine I had ever purchased! Color: Excellent, gleaming ruby to rose edges, no brick, deep red center Nose: Berry and cherry, some older loamy and leather aromatics. Very nice. Palate: Medium to full bodied, showing its age gracefully in its weight on the palate. Currants and black cherry, some spice and tobacco and sage. Drinking nicely, but may not be for everyone. The finish resonantes the echoe of the aged fruits, though there are still some serious tannins hanging around.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
