Cade is a fave of mine. This vintage is no exception. We were spoiled by the Gaja and Palmer.

Deep purple in color. Dense and extracted nose of black and blue fruit, licorice and dark chocolate. Weighty and masculine in style with pronounced ripe fruit, cedar, saddle leather and coffee. The tannins are big and grippy and the finish long with hints of pension shavings.

Airport wine 🤷🏼‍♂️ As a side note, if anyone has recommendations on food or wine stops in eastern downtown San Francisco, let me know.

First time having Cade. Actually, I’ve not had any of the 3 that I’m sampling. Seeing Cade is from Howell, I figured it would be my favorite...and it was. The Raymond didn’t need much air, and the Mount Veeder would have been my favorite if the taste was as divine as the nose. This Cade needed about 20-30mins to come alive. Texture softened but those mountain tannins gave it strong backbone. Definitely black and blue fruit dominant with espresso and dark chocolate notes. Would like to try a whole bottle of this and see how it develops.

5th day of our 24 day cruise into the Amazon. Wonderful veal tenderloin was great with the Cade Howell Mountain selection. Went to the Napa Valley Howell Mountain tasting last year and this was our favorite!

A bruiser of a Cab at 15.5% alc. yet still shows nice balance. Dense fruit concentration with a touch of eucalyptus and lots of (integrated) oak. Showy and age worthy. Begging for rib roast.
