2012 CADE Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Cork)
The 2012 growing season on Howell Mountain was more than ideal. We had a long warm growing season that allowed the fruit to reach maturity in flavor and phenolic ripeness. Thus the resulting wine is rich, dense, and full of intense fruit flavors. The wine boasts aromas of coffee, boysenberry, graham cracker, and black cherries. On the palate are flavors of cream de cassis, milk chocolate, toasted marsh mellow, blueberry pie, and dark fruits. The palate’s richness, density, structural balance, and tannin are the attributes we look for in our Reserve offering. It is the best of Howell Mountain and our Estate.
