CADE 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a deep purple-black color, revealing youthfully reticent notions of black soil, cigar box, stewed tea and truffles with a core of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, plum preserves and star anise plus wafts of underbrush and pencil lead. The bold, concentrated, full-bodied palate is a hedonist's dream, featuring bags of black fruit preserves and earthy accents and framed by very firm, super ripe tannins, finishing with epic length and depth.

96 points Vinous - Totally seamless and opulent, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve shows the flamboyant side of Howell Mountain to great effect. Dark cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, cocoa, grilled herbs and leather all run through this sumptuous, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Touches of Petit Verdot and Malbec round out the blend.

93 points Wine Spectator - Vivid açaí, plum and blueberry reduction notes are inlaid with a solid graphite edge, giving the fruit a foil as it moves along. Bright anise and roasted apple wood elements frame the finish, which ends with the fruit showing power and energy. (JM) (8/2019)
