Cade, Howell Mountain, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa, 2019
On the nose are aromas of cola, blueberry, red cherry, coco nibs, baking spices, and dried cranberries, followed by flavors of boysenberry, black cherry, elderberry, dark chocolate, clove, and licorice. It finishes with bramble, amaretto, and dried blue/black fruits. This wine has a classic Howell Mountain structure and tannin — big and bold but balanced in approach. The cooler vintage produced wines with higher perceived acidity and exceptional red fruit flavors and aromas.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Malbec
