By April 10, 2013

Follow me on:

Many are familiar with Napa's presitigious PlumpJack winery in Oakville, and since the launch of CADE Estate on Howell Mountain - there's been plenty of excitement surrounding their power-packed Cabs. The 2009 Howell Mountain Cab is no exception, with grapes sourced from five high-end Howell Mountain growers and enjoying lofty layers of fruit and spice.

Expect dark fruit character, blackberry and black currant, with a heady mix of mint, dark chocolate, vanilla, and black licorice rounding out the palate profile.  Finesse, strength, elegance, and balance play on the intrigue factor and keep this heavy-hitting red in top form.
