Cade Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The 2014 vintage was ideal with exceptional growing conditions throughout the season. In early September, a surging heat spike boosted both sugars and flavors into an exquisite red and black fruit zone. This fruit zone built fragrant aromas of black cherry, ripe raspberry, melted milk chocolate, and clove. Elegantly structured, this wine boasts smooth tannins that glide across the palate. The wine finishes with flavors of blackberry compote, coco nibs, and bright red fruits. The 2014 vintage has an elegance and roundness to it which makes it ideal for drinking now or cellaring for 5-7 years.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 9% Malbec

"The least expensive wine in the Cade portfolio is their 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 % and 9% Malbec. This is a soft, juicy, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon that fits the vintage profile. Beautifully dark ruby/purple with plenty of cassis, black cherry and plum, the wine is medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and lushness in a front-end loaded, consumer-friendly style. Drink it over the next decade." -Wine Advocate
