2016 CADE HOWELL MOUNTAIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON

From Jeb Dunnuck,The only red I was able to taste, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate checks in as 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec, and 5% Petit Verdot brought up in 79% new French oak. It’s a total rock star of a wine and boasts a saturated purple color, a flamboyant, full-bodied, sexy style, awesome notes of cassis, toasty oak, tobacco, and graphite, sweet tannins, and thrilling purity of fruit. It ranks with the creme de la creme of Howell Mountain and has 2-3 decades of longevity ahead of it.97 Points

From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, The 2016 Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. It has a deep purple-black color and wonderfully pure, vibrant notes of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and baker’s chocolate with touches of Indian spices, licorice and cloves plus an earthy waft of damp soil. Full-bodied, rich and powerful in the mouth with a rock-solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, it finishes with layer after layer of black fruit and exotic spices.” 96+ Points

Already spectacular, and Composed from five of the best vineyards on Howell Mountain, this 2016 Howell Mnt Cab will only get better with another year, perhaps two more years of bottle age. By that time it will be sold-out. This type of wine attracts a Global Market… My wife says Cade Estate is a beautiful, elegant wine, and I agree, however I also think about price appreciation and investments. Especially for our VIPs.
