Cade Winery

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.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

High expectations and a decent aperitif wine. Very sweet vanilla and oaky. I mean. More than Caymus. Crazy. Kinda like drinking candy. Not a lot of depth but fruit was good. Liked it but once steaks arrived - it was time to move on to Cade Howell — 3 years ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Very approachable for a Howell Moutain cab. Needs a bit of airtime. Black and red ripe fruit, bordering too jammy. Tannins strong and grippy. High alcohol is noticeable. Nice finish. — 6 months ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Cabernet sauvignon 2005

Sorry to say I turned 60 a couple of weeks ago. My daughters came in to celebrate this past weekend and we wanted to drink some good wine. What a trio: ‘12 Cade Reserve, ‘13 Cardinale, and ‘05 Leoville Las Cases. Ironically, I am going to score all 3 of these as 97+. They were really a treat. The Las Cases was decanted for 5 hours and it was clear that we were about 7 years too early. It’s a terrific wine and at at age ~25 it will be absolutely stunning. Already has balance and harmony. Can’t wait until I am about 67 so that I can revisit the remaking 11 bottles! — 3 years ago
