    Winemaker's Notes:

    The second of three (2007-2009) consecutive wonderful vintages the 2008 Cade Cuvee is a worthy successor to the 2007. The inclusion of 7% Malbec gives the wine a juiciness and fruit forwardness. Aromas of black cherry, plums and milk chocolate are followed on the palate with flavors of cocoa, blackberries and warm cherry pie filling. Much more approachable upon release than the 2007, there is a sense of balance that will allow the wine to age gracefully for the next 3-5 years.

    Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Firm tannins mark this young Cabernet, as well as a dense girding of minerals. Together with the dryness, these make it fairly austere. But a molten core of spicy blackberry flavor bodes well for the future. Cellar until at least 2018. Cellar Selection.

    Plenty to admire in this taut, focused effort, with dried dark berry, mineral, blueberry and sage notes on a medium to full body. Well-proportioned, ending with a burst of blueberry fruit. Drink now through 2021. 5,235 cases made.
