Cakebread is a top-tier winery in the Napa Valley, family owned and operated since 1973 . Today the estate is made up of 15 sites totaling 560 vineyard acres in Carneros, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Anderson Valley and other prime locations in Napa. Committed to sustainable and organic production in both the vineyard and winery, the Cakebreads have shown their commitment to quality through their years of family teamwork, their stewardship of the land, their care in growing and vinifying individual lots of grapes for each wine and their public programs for healthy living. The result is a world-class winery that crafts distinctive wines and welcomes dedicated visitors year after year.

Jack Cakebread’s first pursuits were on his family’s orchard ranch in Contra Costa county and as his father’s partner in Cakebread’s Garage. While in the Air Force in the 1950s with the Strategic Air Command in North Africa, he developed an interest in photography. In 1959, he studied photography under the master of landscape, Ansel Adams, and established Cakebread Photography. It was in 1972, as the commissioned photographer for Nathan Chroman’s photographic history The Treasury of American Wines, that he stopped one day to see family friends with a 22-acre ranch in Rutherford. Jack casually expressed interest in buying land, and soon received word that his friends were willing to sell. Jack and Dolores Cakebread purchased the ranch, and Jack embarked on his fifth career—winemaking—at age 43.

Lots of plums, darker cherries, currants, tobacco, and graphite-like notes emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Suscol Springs, a gorgeously complex, medium to full-bodied, finesse-driven effort. A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged in 54% new oak, it has some background spicy wood notes, remarkable purity, and great tannins. Drink it any time over the coming 15+ years.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Suscol Springs is dark, powerful and super-expressive. Grilled herbs, menthol and licorice add attractive aromatic presence. Inky and textured, with terrific balance, the Suscol Springs is a gorgeous wine from Cakebread Cellars.
