Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2017 - 750ml

$ 120.00

97 Points Jeb Dunnuck

"Coming from estate fruit on Howell Mountain, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers a darker, more mineral-driven style compared to the Napa release. It has beautiful blackcurrant, cassis, forest floor, graphite, and tobacco leaf-like aromas and flavors. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully polished and elegant, it's another remarkable effort from this team. As Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it's a brilliant value!"

94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with 4% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot, is deep garnet-purple colored and a little closed, slowly giving up warm cassis, blackberry tart and mulberries with touches of spice box, pencil shavings and Marmite toast. The full-bodied palate is firm, grainy and muscular with an earthy expression and just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note."

As an homage to our first winery, the caves at CADE Estate were designed in the shape of the PlumpJack shield. CADE Estate, similar to PlumpJack, also takes its name from Shakespeare, who used the term to refer to the wine casks– or cades– shipped from Bordeaux to England during Elizabethan times.

With a shared vision, Gavin Newsom, Gordon Getty and John Conover imagined the addition of a complementary estate vineyard to the valley floor terroir of their Oakville estate at PlumpJack Estate Winery. In 2005, that dream came to fruition in the form of a 54-acre estate, elevated high above the fog line, on the dramatic slopes of Howell Mountain – it would become CADE Estate Winery.
