2021 Cade 'Estate' Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain


Winemaker Danielle Cyrot has masterfully yoked the strength that Howell Mountain brings with this latest release. Intoxicating aromas of cedar, rose, black cherry, and lavender, with blackberry, cassis, coffee, and chocolate on the finish. High elevation power and elegance. This wine has length, depth and a finish that seems to go on for days; a Howell Mountain gem.

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 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Cade Estate combines fruit from the original vineyard and 13th Vineyard. It shows hints of pine and sage on the nose, accenting a base of ripe black cherries, while the full-bodied palate is concentrated. It's rich without being overdone, with a long, velvety finish.

The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain comes almost all from the estate on Howell Mountain and is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot. It has classic Howell Mountain style in its ripe blue fruits, violets, iron, and bouquet garni-like aromatics, and its medium to full-bodied, with a rich, mouth-filling texture and outstanding length. It has another 15 years of prime drinking ahead of it.
