The CADE Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is sourced from five small growers on Howell Mountain: CADE Estate Vineyards, Ink Grade Vineyards, Outpost Vineyards, True and Eagle Summit Vineyards. The cooler 2009 vintage gave us a higher acidity on Howell Mountain and that in turn gives the wine a wonderful freshness. On the palate, flavors of chocolate, mint, currant, and vanilla bean are revealed. The tannins are firm but not obtrusive and the wine can easily age for the next 6-9 years.

94 Points, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate – “The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a fascinating wine. Some of the rougher, wilder edges that are present in the 2008 are smoothed out here. Layers of expressive dark fruit, licorice, mint and new leather wrap around the palate in this deep, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”

93 Points, Wine Spectator – “Balancing power with finesse, this offers intense blackberry, dusty rock, cedar, black licorice and dried herb flavors. Gains depth and nuance, with tannins providing traction and definition.”
