2017 Cade Reserve Cabernet, Howell Mountain
The wine starts out with aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, chocolate covered raspberry, currant, holiday baking spices, and coco nibs. In the palate are flavors of black fruits, chocolate truffles, cinnamon, caramel, cherry cola, and baked blueberries. The velvety tannins and mouth coating texture of this wine make it an exceptional example of what Howell Mountain can offer. This wine will keep delivering for years to come.

ABOUT THE WINERY
With a shared vision, Gavin Newsom, Gordon Getty and John Conover imagined the addition of a complementary estate vineyard to the valley floor terroir of their Oakville estate at PlumpJack Estate Winery. In 2005, that dream came to fruition in the form of a 54-acre estate, elevated high above the fog line, on the dramatic slopes of Howell Mountain – it would become CADE Estate Winery.
Given the opportunity to build the winery from the ground up, Newsom, Getty and Conover were committed to constructing a state-of-the-art winery that would pay tribute to the land, both aesthetically and ecologically. This commitment would go above and beyond the standard benchmark of environmental responsibility, especially in the world of wine. The end goal, to construct the first CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) organically farmed, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified Estate Winery in the Napa Valley.
