CADE CABERNET SAUVIGNON "ESTATE", HOWELL MOUNTAIN NAPA VALLEY 2016

Wine Advocate

96+ Points

The 2016 Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. It has a deep purple-black color and wonderfully pure, vibrant notes of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and baker's chocolate with touches of Indian spices, licorice and cloves plus an earthy waft of damp soil. Full-bodied, rich and powerful in the mouth with a rock-solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, it finishes with layer after layer of black fruit and exotic spices.

NVWE Notes: This is a deep, concentrated, focused Cabernet that offers scents of black currant, blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, clove, cedar, dark pipe tobacco, black tea, peppery bouillon and a hint of licorice root. It is both zesty and gripping on the palate, so the texture seems a bit lean despite all the richness and body. The mouth-feel is supple however and the flavors fully emerge as a polished melange of black cherry, blackberry, Cassis, cedar, clove, leather, bay leaf, black tea, tobacco and licorice root. The finish is very long, if a bit over-rich in oak at this stage. Certain to improve for six to ten years and live twenty at least, it is quite pleasurable now, if judiciously aired. Blended with 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 5% Petite Verdot, 1576 cases produced.
