The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is even better, with a stunning nose of black and blue fruits as well as iron, black olive tapenade, and subtle herbal nuances. Pure 2019 goodness on the palate, its full-bodied, has ripe, polished tannins, a great mid-palate, and one heck of a finish. Its not for those looking for old school Claret, but it brings beautiful richness and depth and will shine for at least 10-12 years ... read more

Wine Advocate 94
The 2019 Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec. Deep garnet-purple in color, it charges out of the glass with vibrant black cherry preserves, wild blueberries and mulberries scents, giving way to a core of cassis and star anise plus a waft of chocolate box. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with bright black fruits, it has a fine-grained texture and long, energetic finish. Rating: 94+

Wine Spectator 93
This is packed with steeped plum and blackberry fruit paste notes mixed with tar, roasted apple wood and warm earth. A racy savory stripe is nicely buried through the finish, where a violet echo lingers. Best from 2024 through 2036.

On the nose are aromas of cola, blueberry, red cherry, coco nibs, baking spices, and dried cranberries, followed by flavors of boysenberry, black cherry, elderberry, dark chocolate, clove, and licorice. It finishes with bramble, amaretto, and dried blue/black fruits. This wine has a classic Howell Mountain structure and tannin big and bold but balanced in approach. The cooler vintage produced wines with higher perceived acidity and exceptional red fruit flavors and aromas.

Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Malbec
About Cade Estate
CADE Estate Winery sits high above the fog line on the dramatic slopes of Howell Mountain, just northeast of the town of St. Helena. The building's striking architecture, a dialogue between gentle contours and strong rectilinear forms, suggests the complexity of their wines – powerful yet nuanced expressions of their mountain terroir. The winery blends right in with the impressive contrasts of the estate, a spot where cultivated vineyard rows meet tall evergreens and native Manzanita trees, all set against a backdrop of staggering Napa Valley vistas for a visitor experience not soon forgotten.

In 2005, Gavin Newsom, Gordon Getty and John Conover established CADE Estate Winery to craft luxury, high-altitude estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain as a complement to the valley floor wines of PlumpJack Winery. Like PlumpJack, CADE takes its name from Shakespeare, who used the term to refer to the wine casks – or cades – shipped from Bordeaux to England during Elizabethan times.

At an elevation of 1800 feet, the estate – 54 contiguous acres surrounding the winery – experiences a unique temperature inversion. During the day, conditions are cooler than those on the valley floor; evenings, on the other hand, grow warmer with the setting sun. This gives the grapes extended hangtime, allowing them to ripen fully and evenly for wines of exceptional density and balance. Our mountainside soils, characterized by volcanic ash and minerals, provide beneficial stress to vines that further concentrates the character of this unique terroir.

The team at CADE Estate believes that winemaking should honor the land, both aesthetically and ecologically. The estate's artistic, contemporary design, with its inviting rooms and wide open terrace, encourages guests to discover the ever-changing interplay among natural and architectural spaces. The environmentally responsible construction includes solar panels, naturally regulated caves, reclaimed and recycled materials and much more. CADE is proud to be the first organically farmed LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified estate winery in Napa Valley.
