In 2005, that dream came to fruition in the form of a 54-acre estate, elevated high above the fog line, on the dramatic slopes of Howell Mountain – CADE Estate Winery. Similar to PlumpJack, CADE takes its name from Shakespeare, who used the term to describe wine casks, or cades, shipped from Bordeaux to England during Elizabethan times. With the opportunity to build the winery from the ground up, Newsom, Getty and Conover were committed to constructing a state-of-the-art winery that pays tribute to the land. The building's striking architecture, a dialogue between gentle contours and strong rectilinear forms, suggests the complexity of our wines– powerful yet nuanced expressions of our mountain terroir.

Tasting Notes

Cade Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of raspberry, dried cranberry, cherry cola, berry compote, and fruit leather with cinnamon, clove, graham cracker, and slight tobacco from the oak. The wine is rich and dense with large, balanced tannins. The palate has flavors of pomegranate, rhubarb, piecrust, allspice, and fresh red fruits. It is a great representation of what can be made from Howell Mountain fruit.

Food Pairing 

This wine’s high acidity, high alcohol, and pronounced flavor intensity make it difficult for pairing with a wide variety of foods. Classically, Cabernet Sauvignon like this wine is paired with stronger meats like ostrich, lamb, and beef. When there is a little bit of charring on steak, as well as some black pepper - those bold flavors helps in foiling potentially bitter tannins found in younger wines.
