Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant black cherry and cassis bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is an oak, mineral and black currant blend with notes of black pepper. I also detected a hint of stewed plum. The finish is dry and its tannins build up and linger for a very long time. I would pair this Cab with a marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 vintage is a special one since it features fruit from our newest 82-acre estate on Howell Mountain, CADE 13th Vineyard. A potpourri of aromas explode from the glass with notes of raspberry coulis, black cherry, cedar, cocoa nib, boysenberry, mint, graham cracker, and a hint of lavender, rose and bay. The palate follows with bright flavors of red cherry and strawberry jam before tertiary elements of coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, and fresh plums take over. This wine is full-bodied displaying archetypal Howell Mountain tannin balanced by an elegant structure.
