    December 1, 2021 - Needs more age or a longer decante…harsh flavor at this time. Decanted for 2 hrs and probably needed more time.

    From website:

    The 2017 vintage was by far one of the most challenging harvests we have experienced at CADE. But the resulting wines are what made the long days all the hard work worth it. The wine has aromas of blueberry, blackberry, coco nibs, cranraspberry, roasted coffee, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, mint, and fruit leather. The wine has a velvety texture with lush and prominent tannins and bright acidity.

    There are flavors of boysenberry, blueberry pie, red cherry, cola, vanilla, graham cracker, and chocolate truffles."

    October 27, 2021 - one of three sister wineries in the Plumbjack family. Wonderful expression of the Howell Mountain Region. Can't go wrong. Full bodied Cab.

    October 25, 2021 - Dark blue fruit, tobacco, spice, and slate, into a smokey, medium finish. An unflattering vintage of a Howell Mountain favorite.
