Cade’s Reserve wine defines Howell Mountain majesty for us. Anise, blackberries and cassis, bay leaf and garrigue make this such a structured beauty. It will age 20+ years handily. This bottling comes with a screwcap finish, as well as a cork finish.
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.
The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is blended with 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers profound blackberry preserves, Black Forest cake and warm cassis with mocha, truffles, cinnamon stick, cloves and cigar box plus a waft of rose hip tea. The palate is big, rich and full, with firm yet velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy.
