Cade Napa Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine AdvocateThe opulent, fleshy, sexy, consumer friendly 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as oodles of blackcurrant fruit intermixed with floral and blueberry notes. Lush and plush, it can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years, although such well-balanced and forward wines as this can sometimes age two decades or more.
Wine SpectatorFirm, tight and richly flavored, centered on a core of blackberry and wild berry flavors, with dusty underbrush, black licorice and cedary oak notes. Ends with a long, persistent finish and a tannic backbone that gives the flavors traction. Drink now through 2028. 5,800 cases made.
