CADE Reserve Vineyard Notes
The CADE Estate is situated on a 54 acre property with 21 acres planted to vines with an ideal southwest facing exposure. Located in the heart of Howell Mountain, the CADE Estate Reserve Vineyard sits at elevations ranging from 1,500 to 1,850 feet and is planted to 19 acres of cabernet sauvignon and 2 acres of merlot.

Fermentation
The juice was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks 95%, and 500L newFrench oak puncheons 5%. Fermentation was hot and fast with temperatures reaching a maximum of 92F and the juice macerating on the skins/seeds for 8-9 days.

Elevage
The wine was aged for 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Only free run wine was used in the blend, no press fractions were selected. Racking occurred immediately after the completion of malolactic fermentation, then on a quarterly basis until bottling.

Cooperage
Darnajou, Sylvain, Atelier, Orion, Seguin Moreau, Ermitage, and Dargaud et Jaegle.

Bottling
Bottled on July 14th, 2016

Our Thoughts
Glorious levels of aromas spring from the glass with loads of blueberry, blackberry, cherry, plus warm roasted coffee, melted milk chocolate, vanilla and graham cracker. The palate is mouth coating, plush and voluptuously texted, like a raspberry reduction sauce, with deep density and persistence. Elegant tannin and structure, a unique characteristic of the 2014 vintage. Rich, pure and intense, finishing with flavors of coffee, cassis, and chocolate covered berries. This wine is a reflection of the best of the vintage and the best Cabernet Sauvignon from our Howell Mountain Estate.

Accolades
95 POINTS: "The 2014 CADE Reserve, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (and finished with a screwcap), cuts a broader swath than even the regular bottling, shows slightly sweeter tannin, perhaps more ripeness, but is plush, voluptuously texted, deep full-bodied and impressively endowed. There is no reason to defer gratification, as this wine is already singing and expressive." - The Wine Advovate
