Loved it but itโ€™s big and bold and 9 years old - will last 10 plus years

Restaurant buy with no air or decant. Drinks great right out of the gate. Finish is a little short- that would be my only negative. Killer example of mountain fruit!

I almost have to punt on this one. The dinner we had with this bottle was SO contrary and confusing, the wine didn't stand a chance. Prior to the courses beginning to arrive it was looking very promising...

Very beautiful. Lots of melon and citrus rind. Excellent texture. The viognier comes through quite assertively.

2012!! ๐Ÿ•ฐ A marvelous year; the year @deked1 and I reconnected. Two years later we exchanged vows and began our adventure in life together. Tonight, weโ€™re celebrating our seventh wedding anniversary. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• The honeymoon vibes are still going strong! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Weโ€™re excited about this 2012 Cade that was bottled on June 13th, 2014, just over a month before our wedding. Itโ€™s comprised of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot. It comes from Howell Mountain AVA in Napa Valley, California. โ›ฐ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Howell Mountain AVA is known for producing fuller-bodied and well-structured wines with vines planted at an elevation ranging from 1600 to 2200 ft above sea level and good sun exposure. โ˜€๏ธ This wine is no exception with its firm tannins, medium acidity, and high alcohol (15.2%); also, its opulent, ripe black fruits such as juicy blackberry bramble, black cherry, crรจme de cassis, also black licorice, pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, dark chocolate, espresso, clove, and forest floor. It has a long, elegant finish. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

It also underwent 20 months of barrel aging in 100% French Oak 80% of which was new, which explains the noteworthy secondary aromas and flavors that add to the complexity of this wine.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Hereโ€™s to cherishing the moment with the people you love. Cheers!
