Perched high atop Howell Mountain, Cade’s Reserve wine defines Howell Mountain majesty for us. Wine Advocate loved the complexity, “Youthfully reticent notions of black soil, cigar box, stewed tea and truffles with a core of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, plum preserves and star anise plus wafts of underbrush and pencil lead. The bold, concentrated, full-bodied palate is a hedonist's dream, featuring bags of black fruit preserves and earthy accents and framed by very firm, super ripe tannins, finishing with epic length and depth.”

Such a structured beauty, it will age 20+ years handily.

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.

Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a deep purple-black color, revealing youthfully reticent notions of black soil, cigar box, stewed tea and truffles with a core of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, plum preserves and star anise plus wafts of underbrush and pencil lead. The bold, concentrated, full-bodied palate is a hedonist's dream, featuring bags of black fruit preserves and earthy accents and framed by very firm, super ripe tannins, finishing with epic length and depth.
