New Washington State Red from the folks at Cakebread!
Mullan Road Cellars is a journey into Washington winemaking led by Dennis Cakebread of Cakebread Cellars. Drawn by the high quality of wines and the camaraderie of the Walla Walla wine community, Dennis and winemaker Aryn Morell worked with the famed Seven Hills Vineyard on the southern edge of the Walla Walla Valley appellation as well as vineyards in the soon-to-be-recognized Royal Slope appellation to craft this powerful yet elegant Bordeaux-style Red Blend.
90 Points Robert Parker: "While the 2013 Columbia Valley Red Wine showed better from barrel than bottle, it's still an outstanding effort. The focus with this cuvee is always higher elevation sites with the goal to make a fresh, elegant wine. Checking in as a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec, it has a classic Cabernet perfume of crème de cassis, spring flowers, sappy underbrush and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, balanced and elegant on the palate, drink it anytime over the coming decade.

One hundred percent of the grapes for this wine came from Cakebread's estate vineyard near Boonville in the southern end of Anderson Valley. Masculine in style with dense, brooding, black plum, dark chocolate, vanilla and roasted coffee aromas. The full-bodied palate is lush and textured, with layers of mouthfilling dark fruit and chocolate-tinged flavors balanced by ripe, supple tannins. Delicious now with hearty fare, this big, youthful Pinot Noir will soften and gain further complexity with another 3 to 5 years of bottle age.
A Napa Valley Classic!
Consistently one of Napa Valley's classiest merlots, the Cakebread Merlot is an especially rich example of the variety. Delicious now, this lavishly flavored, complex Merlot will benefit from another 3-5 years' cellaring.
The Cakebread Cellars Merlot Napa Valley, blended with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, is an especially rich example of the variety. It displays ripe blackberry and black plum aromas with secondary scents of vanilla and dark coffee characteristics. Lush and full-bodied, showcasing luscious blackberry, plum and boysenberry flavors that segue into a long finish featuring spiciness, elegant, refined tannins, and crisp underlying acidity. The grapes for the Merlot come from two classic Napa Valley regions: the cool-climate Carneros district in the southern valley, which delivers bright fruit with crisp acidity, and the mid-valley region, whose warmer temperatures produce riper, richer fruit with juicy berry and plum flavor

Cakebread Cellars 2013 Vine Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley. Cakebread utilizes traditional fermentation techniques with the Vine Hill fruit to ensure complete extraction of its deep color, intense flavors and smooth, ripe tannins. Once fermentation begins, the juice is drained from one tank to another, allowing the skins in the first tank to fall to the bottom, only to be thoroughly re-macerated once the juice is splashed back into the tank, a technique known as rack-and-return. In addition to extracting more color and flavor, the aeration this technique affords converts short-chain (harsh) tannins to long-chain (suppler) tannins. After an extended maceration, the wine is gently drained from the skins and the free run juice transferred to French oak barrels. The skins are then pressed, and the resulting ‘press fraction’ kept separate
Rare Reserve Cabernet - 94+
New release of Cakebread's rare and coveted Benchland Select Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - limited.
95 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from some of the finest western benchlands in Napa Valley. This saw about 23 months in 64% new French oak. A rather glorious nose of red and black fruits, spice box, earth and graphite jump from the glass of this full-bodied, beautifully supple and voluptuously textured wine. A dense purple color, juicy, round, plush tannins and a multi-layered mouthfeel make for a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now or cellar for another 15-20 years....
Cakebread Cellars has been on quite a qualitative roll of late and continues to demonstrate a Midas touch with all of its wines. Their first vintage was 1973, so they are coming up on the 43rd/44th harvest."
