Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Rich and decadent, the nose is full of sweet baking spices, mocha, stewed dark fruit, and espresso notes. Full-bodied, rich, and juicy, this premium Napa Cab would be fantastic paried with grilled New York strip loin, or alongside prime rib roast. Tasted November 2014. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied Napa Cab Sauv with a fragrant ripe cassis& strawberry nose and delicious palate of ripe cassis, strawberry, vanilla, milk chocolate and slight mint. Smooth, harmonious and well-balanced with a long ripe cassis finish. This one is definitely on my list for Santa!

Dave rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Took a while to open up but was fantastic with a filet
The Californian winery Cade was established by the same founders of PlumpJack Winery. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grow in Napa Valley vineyards such as Kenefick Ranch Vineyards in Calistoga, Beckstoffer's Dr. Crane Vineyards in St. Helena, Hanson-Hsieh Vineyard in Oak Knoll, and UC Davis Oakville Station. The 2012 vintage of this Cabernet Sauvignon is densely concentrated. Good cellar wine. - Community Wine Reviews
