Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2009 is a very unique white wine that balances dry and sweet nicely.
Upon uncorking the bottle and taking a sniff I got a rich smell of fruit that bordered on dessert. The aroma was very delightful and will surprise people.
As I alluded to earlier, this Sauvignon Blanc is very interesting. You get a big taste of fruit flavor but you don’t get a big rush of sweetness. This wine is dry and leaves you wanting more.
I found this bottle to be well-balanced. I found this wine to be full bodied so I suggest specifying this for the entree during dinner.
I experienced a long finish that was crisp and full of fruit which is what I expected.
Verdict: I really liked the Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2009. I would pair this bottle with shellfish and some dessert. More importantly this wine would be great in recipes due to its’ dry sweetness. It is priced at $24.00 dollars and would make a great gift to any wine lover that is looking to try something new and fairly complex.
