97 POINTSJeb Dunnuck
“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate checks in as 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec, and 5% Petit Verdot brought up in 79% new French oak. It’s a total rock star of a wine and boasts a saturated purple color, a flamboyant, full-bodied, sexy style, awesome notes of cassis, toasty oak, tobacco, and graphite, sweet tannins, and thrilling purity of fruit. It ranks with the creme de la creme of Howell Mountain and has 2-3 decades of longevity ahead of it.”

96+ POINTSRobert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
“The 2016 Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep purple-black color and wonderfully pure, vibrant notes of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and baker’s chocolate with touches of Indian spices, licorice and cloves plus an earthy waft of damp soil. Full-bodied, rich and powerful in the mouth with a rock-solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, it finishes with layer after layer of black fruit and exotic spices.”
