    About This Wine

    A lovely, come-hither nose of bright black cherry and raspberry fruit, coupled with intriguing hints of violets and roasted herbs, prefaces a full-bodied palate brimming with lush black cherry, plum, raspberry and strawberry flavors. Blessed with a very long finish featuring succulent cherry and blackberry fruit melded with super-smooth tannins and a vein of minerality, this rich, concentrated California red is the perfect accompaniment to casual meals featuring spicy dishes, grilled meats, barbecued ribs and chicken, and rich, tomato-based pastas.

    Rubaiyat is named for the famous verse in a collection of poems by the 12th-century Persian philosopher Omar Khayyám: “…a loaf of bread…a flask of wine, a book of verse – and thou singing beside me in the wilderness.” The components of this flavorful, fruit-forward red wine change annually based on vintage conditions and our winemaker Julianne Laks’ assessment of which lots of Cakebread Cellars’ red wines will produce the tastiest blend.
