The name Cakebread reverberates throughout the wine world whenever it’s mentioned. It’s not only one of America’s most popular wines, it’s one of the most famous brands in the world, led by their world class Cabernet production.
I have previously been able to score Cakebread Chard, but this is the first time I got the flagship wine under the Cakebread name. It’s ridiculously allocated with my source only getting six cases to sell a year! I got 48 of those 72 bottles to offer up today.. Don’t wait around….
The history of Cakebread is a who’s who of some of America’s important wine pioneers. Jack Cakebread started it all. Robert Mondavi was the original enologist with Larry Wara as his consultant, The pair had to make the wine at neighbor Keenan winery while they were waiting for their world class winery to be designed and built by William Turnbull.
Over the decades, amazingly, the quality of the wines never faded, they only improved. It’s part of what makes this winery so special. In my last twenty years in the restaurant industry, Cakebread Cellars has never left the Top 10 most popular restaurant brands. The reason is really simple: the wines always elate their customers.

Ripe plums and blackberries with some coca-nib, vanilla, bread-crust and smoke notes. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, deep fruit and bright acidity. Tight and reserved, yet juicy, with a long finish. Approachable now, but better in 2022.
