Velvety and seamless fruit follow a rich and brambly nose of black currant and light vanilla. Cade just keep upping their game. Outstanding.

Typical Howell Mountain style with very firm structure and excellent dark garnet color and high acidity. This baby needs decanting for not less than 2 hours and is still improving 36 hours later. It’s a very sturdy wine, enjoyable on its own or paired with a beautifully charred rib eye. I’m worried that Plumpjack will increase its price for this. Cheers!

Finally getting around to posting Day 5 in Napa, our final day. 5 years in a row visiting...hope to make it 6 next year!

This is just super young. The signature mountain fruit is gritty and tightly wound. Graphite, underripe red and black fruits, roasted plum, mocha and dark chocolate. Give it time.

Definitely going through some changes. May need to be salad for a while before it reawakens

Cherry cheesecake! It's overwhelming the nose on this thing. Very definitely cherry cheesecake with baked Graham cracker crust. Wife says "butterscotch". Piney notes on the exit. Fabulous.

Always good. Juicy, brooding, ripe red and dark fruits, baking spices, graphite, licorice, and eucalyptus. Lovely depth and complexity.
