The resulting wine is fantastic with aromas of clove, cranberry, raspberry, coffee, cinnamon, black pepper, and coco nibs. Gloriously pure notes of boysenberry, graphite, blackberry, coffee and dark chocolate soar from the glass and cascade over the palate. The wine is full-bodied, with an opulent, velvety texture, pure, rich with firm tannins and bold structure that is classic Howell Mountain.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a sumptuous Howell Mountain Cabernet. It offers up an exciting mélange of dark red/purplish fruit, rose petal, spice, game, mint and blood orange. More than anything else, the Estate Cabernet delivers plenty of Howell Mountain richness, with nicely softened tannins that make it a total pleasure to taste.

This has both grippy mountain fruit characteristics as well as a sleekness, with racy-edged black currant, fig and blackberry fruit lined with bramble, apple wood and licorice snap notes. Features a strong finishing kick of fruit at the end, too. Best from 2023 through 2035. 18,850 cases made.

Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color, delivering expressive scents of warm cassis, baked black cherries, plum preserves and raisin cake with touches of licorice, woodsmoke and dried Provence herbs. Full-bodied, the palate has a not unpleasant chewiness to the texture and bold freshness supporting the black fruit preserves, finishing on an earthy/smoky note.
