Nose on the pour of citrus and pear, after swirling the nose intensifies with grapefruit rind adding to the citrus & pear, body rich and round with good acidity with long finish. — 2 months ago
The age starts to show. A muted nose of almost indistinguishable character, but a shockingly strong fruit flavor of black raspberry and cassis. Probably peaked about 4 years ago, but still very delicious. — 8 months ago

Cade Winery Oakville Premiere Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Napa Valley, California
Deep ruby in color with a very short reddish rim.
Sweet nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, figs, cedar, raisins, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus herbs and black pepper.
Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, cooked plums, raisins, herbs, dried figs, vanilla, cedar, spices, cola, milk chocolates, tobacco, light earth and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.
This 14 year old from a great vintage in Napa, is drinking wonderfully now. A gorgeous wine that will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.
Showing great complexity and mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime. I did not decant it and left it in the bottle.
A great wine to have all by itself, but will pair very nicely with a nice piece of steak.
Thank you Sonny for sharing this with me.
