Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2022

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


Napa Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

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

@Ethan Karas it’s hard to imagine the missing aroma, the low-medium acidity, and the medium finish were the initial characteristics of the wine. Don’t get me wrong, it is still highly enjoyable! The question now is as it continues to age, and the intensity of flavor falls, but at the same time evolves, will it be better? I believe the richness of the flavor of chocolate covered fruits and raisins this wine is bound to turn towards will be great, but not worth the drop in boldness.

Premiere Napa Valley Oakville number 82 out of 120 Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

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.

This is bottle number 82 out of only 120 produced.

15% alcohol by volume.

97 points.
