Is there a more seamlessly structured and opulent estate Cabernet made on Howell Mountain? The Wine Advocate noted its “dense ruby/purple, plump, juicy and fleshy with plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit.” The ultimate pairing? Grilled rack of lamb with salsa verde. 

Perched high atop Howell Mountain, PlumpJack’s sister winery CADE has been a critical success since the day they opened their doors in 2005. Hailed as one of the “greenest” wineries ever built, it also has views that kill, making people that visit the winery lose all sense of reason and start figuring out how to move to Napa Valley. Amidst the potential vertigo of making wine in the misty mountains at 1,800 feet, this team is given access to the sorts of spare-no-expense vineyards and cellar tools that make “great stuff” possible, and they constantly put out a dizzying array of spectacular wines that always make the grade. A leader in both cutting-edge design and exceptional winemaking, we invite you to grab your pack and join us for their continual ascent.
