The wine has notes of clove, cranberry, raspberry, coffee, cinnamon, black pepper, and coco nibs. Gloriously pure notes of mulberry, graphite, blackberry and blueberry soar from the glass and cascade over the palate. The wine is full-bodied, with an opulent, velvety texture, pure, rich with firm tannins and bold structure.
The 2013 CADE Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain is soft, supple, open-knit and a real beauty. The color is a healthy, deep purple and the wine full-bodied, rich with mulberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, graphite and spice – insanely approachable now given it’s silky personality but capable of evolving for up to 15 – 20 years, if you’re patient enough.
