We feel that the 2008 CADE Estate Cabernet Sauvignon eclipses our blockbuster 2007, the reasons being that the
weather in October 2008 was fantastic with not a drop of rain falling during ripening season and harvest.
Aromas of black cherry, minerals, warm chocolate, and black currants are followed on the palate with flavors of
blackberry puree, chocolate, vanilla, black olive and rosemary. We are amazed at the rich and plush tannins of this
wine a testament not only the 2008 vintage but also to winemaker Toni Biagi and his skilled crew at CADE.
"Displaying an even more opaque purple color, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a glorious nose of blueberries, black raspberries, plums, graphite and crushed rocks. This exquisite Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is about as good as it gets from these higher elevation vineyards on the eastern side of Napa Valley. A brilliant texture, stunning purity and great length make for a fabulous wine to drink over the next 20-25+ years. Rating: 98+"
The Wine Advocate
"Deep, bright ruby. Subtler and more obviously mineral on the nose than the regular HM release, offering scents of black fruits, bitter chocolate and licorice. Full, plush and seamless, with a compellingly suave texture to its mouthfilling flavors of dark fruits, licorice and minerals. Much plumper and sweeter than the young 2009. Finishes very long, with broad, refined tannins buffered by the wine's mid-palate stuffing. An outstanding example of Howell Mountain cabernet. This reminded me of a 2007, except that the tannins are even sweeter. Bottled unfined and unfiltered; the Howell Mountain release received a light polish filtration."

Like Plumpjack, CADE takes its name from Shakespeare, who used the term to refer to the wine casks - or cades - shipped from Bordeaux to England during...Read More About CADE
It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
