Sommelier: Cade Sauvignon Blanc

It’s all a matter of style. Whether you prefer sauvignon blanc dry as flint and green as grass or delicate as white flowers, Cade Sauvignon Blanc straddles the line between old world and new. The old world tends to produce lighter and less fruit forward white blends, but the new world leans toward a more fruit- and citrus-driven Sauvignon Blanc. Cade’s winemaking team crafts with smooth style and diverse personality, blending mostly sauvignon blanc grapes, a bit of viognier for richness, and a dash of semillon for elegance. Cade’s bouquet of Plaquemines Parish tangerines and Georgia peaches opens into a citrus core of ruby grapefruit, key lime and lemon meringue with a finish that’s long, crisp and clean. And the winery is as cool as the wines they produce. Standing above the fog line atop Howell Mountain, it’s a hidden jewel overlooking Napa Valley.

Cade Sauvignon Blanc is served BTG at Adrian’s Restaurant & Bar, where it pairs perfectly with both the Charbroiled Oysters and the Signature Fresh Fish. Bottled with a screw top and available for $35 at Bin Q Liquor, this versatile white wine is excellent with food or standing alone.
