Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a total knock-out. Winemaker Danielle Cyrot has done a tremendous job taming the Howell Mountain tannins. There is still plenty of power and structure, but all the elements are so well balanced here. Inky dark red fruit, iron, new leather, blood orange, spice, a kiss of new French oak and game build in an opulent, brooding Cabernet loaded with personality."

95 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2021

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes all from the estate on Howell Mountain and is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, and the balance Merlot and Petit Verdot. More blue fruits, bay leaf, candied violets, orange blossom, and floral notes emerge from this full-bodied beauty, which reveals a rounded, sexy texture, polished tannins, and a great finish. Give bottles just a few years in the cellar and it's going to keep for 15"

95 points - Jeb Dunnuck, January 2021

The Producer

Cade

CADE Estate is a relatively new estate. The winery was founded in 2005 when three partners, Gordon Getty, John Conover and Gavin Newsom - former Mayor of San Francisco and current Governor of California - purchased vineyards located on high up on Howell Mountain, just a bit northeast of St. Helena. The name CADE makes sense when you know its origin, which is Shakespearean in nature. William Shakespeare used the archaic term for wine barrels, which were being transported from Bordeaux to England. This is a theme for the owners, who count Plumpjack, another Napa vineyard as part of their holdings. Plumpjack also takes its name from the writings of William Shakespeare.

Once CADE Estate was created, the new owners brought in their own winemaking team which consisted of Tony Biagi, and Nils Venge. Venge is the consultant. The logo for CADE Estate winery pictures a drawing of the numerous Manzanita trees on the property.

CADE Estate Winery owns 54 acres of land on Howell Mountain with 21 acres cultivated with vines. They also purchase additional grapes from other like-minded growers. The vineyards are well placed at over 1,800 feet in elevation, which puts them above the fog line. They have good neighbors as they are not far from Abreu, Adamvs and Dunn. The actual winery is located just before you reach Angwin, if you are driving up the main road on Howell Mountain. Their vineyards are planted with all Left Bank Bordeaux varieties. They have 21 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2 acres of Merlot. All work in the vineyards is 100% organic.

Not only is CADE Estate Winery completely organic, they were the first winery in the Napa Valley to earn the coveted LEED certification status. LEED is short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The modern, look of the winery and its green design was created by the Architect, Juan Carlos Fernandez. The green, energy efficient design is unique in that it was constructed entirely out of recycled metal, plastic, ash from coal burning plants and concrete.
