Dense flavors of black cherry, baker's chocolate, black olive and dried herbs are followed by structured tannins and acidity that will allow the wine to age gracefully for the next 5-10 years.
Cade's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain boasts excellent depth and richness, both supported by firm mountain tannin. This attractive Cabernet is a good introduction to Cade. The only thing it lacks is a little more mid-palate juiciness, the issue with so many 2010s from Howell Mountain. Today, the 2010 comes across as a bit compact, but I expect the wine to always be a little on the lean side. I have to say, Cade’s 2010 was much more impressive when I tasted it last year from barrel. The 2010 is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot from a variety of sources on Howell Mountain, roughly 73% estate or estate-controlled and 27% purchased fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Savoury, meaty, focused nose of dark fruit and bitter chocolate. Rich and concentrated palate but not too dense, with grippy tannins and a big bold finish. A good future – one to look out for.
