Antonio Gallioni, Vinous:
“The 2012 Cade Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a model of pure sensuality. Bright red berries, rose petals, mint, anise, and crushed rocks give the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Howell Mountain much of its brightness and lift. Winemaker Danielle Cyrot has done a wonderful job with her inaugural vintage at Cade. The 2012 Estate is layered, sumptuous and beautiful. Silky tannins frame a polished finish laced with rose petals and spices.”

Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate:
“The stunning, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts beautiful mulberry, blueberry, and black raspberry fruit notes, a pure, full-bodied style, sweet tannin, adequate acidity and an opulent, lush mouthfeel. This offering is atypical for a Howell Mountain cuvee, which tends to be more foreboding in its youthfulness.”

Wine Spectator:
“A seductive style, rich and layered, with a tempting overlay of intense, creamy mocha – laced red and dark berry flavors that are deep and persistent. A good bet to gain and age."
