Winemaker Notes

The second of three (2007-2009) consecutive wonderful vintages the 2008 Cade Cuvee is a worthy successor to the 2007. The inclusion of 7% Malbec gives the wine a juiciness and fruit forwardness. Aromas of black cherry, plums and milk chocolate are followed on the palate with flavors of cocoa, blackberries and warm cherry pie filling. Much more approachable upon release than the 2007, there is a sense of balance that will allow the wine to age gracefully for the next 3-5 years.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Firm tannins mark this young Cabernet, as well as a dense girding of minerals. Together with the dryness, these make it fairly austere. But a molten core of spicy blackberry flavor bodes well for the future. Cellar until at least 2018. Cellar Selection.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Plenty to admire in this taut, focused effort, with dried dark berry, mineral, blueberry and sage notes on a medium to full body. Well-proportioned, ending with a burst of blueberry fruit. Drink now through 2021. 5,235 cases made.

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. Given the opportunity to build the winery from the ground up, Newsom, Getty and Conover were committed to constructing a state-of-the-art winery that would pay tribute to the land, both aesthetically and ecologically. This commitment would go above and beyond the standard benchmark of environmental responsibility, especially in the world of wine. The end goal, to construct the first CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) organically farmed, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified Estate Winery in the Napa Valley. The two-fold commitment initiated in the vineyards with a painstaking program of natural cultivation to convert the vineyards to organic farming practices. “Change is good, green is good, organic is good,” says CADE partner John Conover about the estate’s environmentally proactive approach to winemaking. “We’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do as stewards of the land.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
