Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of lychee, honeydew melons, spearmint and freshly mown hay are followed on the palate with flavors of melon, figs, Fiji apple and spring peas. A little more acid than the 2009 results in a mouthwatering finish that brings you back for a second glass!!!

Blend: 94% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon, 1% Viognier

About CADE Winery:

In 2005, Gavin Newsom, Gordon Getty and John Conover established CADE Estate Winery to craft luxury, high-altitude estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain as a complement to the valley floor wines of Plumpjack Winery. 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 Elizabethan times. At an elevation of 1800 feet, their estate - 54 contiguous acres surrounding the winery - experiences a unique temperature inversion. During the day, conditions are much cooler than those on the valley floor; evenings grow warmer with the setting sun. CADE's mountainside soils, characterized by volcanic ash and minerals, provide beneficial stress to vines that further concentrates the character of this unique terroir.
