    July 16, 2021 - Opened and decanted over an hour before enjoying with a cowboy cut ribeye. Flavor and finish were as expected for a quality cab from Howell Mountain.

    November 18, 2020 - Very thin on the finish. Typical of 2011 I think. Tasted like nothing after an hour.

    October 22, 2020 - Just ok. Seemed a little thin. Others seem to have liked it way more than me. I don't have much experience with Cade so maybe it's just not my style.

  • Fugu Me Likes this wine:

    July 12, 2020 - This is rewarding patience of cellaring a cooler season Napa Cab. Requiring 1+ hour of air to help resolve still-firm tannins, this opened up quite nicely and seems to be in a good drinking window now with no signs of fading for years to come. Vacu-vined and refrigerated half the bottle for a few days, and it was still drinking great, if not better than than the first night. Paired well with Flannery 84-day aged NY strips on the first night and grilled Flannery burgers on the last night.

    March 5, 2020 - A long time to open - 1+ hours before the tannin retreats. Medium plum and blackberry fruit. OK finish. This was a good bottle of wine but thought it would be better so a little disappointed.
