Cade Cuvee Cabernet Blend Napa California Wine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Cade Cuvee Cabernet Blend Napa ValleyThe Cade "Napa Cuve" is a mouthful of a wine blended from Cabernet Sauvignon (75%) and Merlot (25%) and aged in 75% new French oak. The Cabernet Sauvignon picked from the alluvial fans of Napa Valley lends dense flavors of blackberry, cherry, chocolate and blueberry while the Cabernet from the hillsides of Howell Mountain give the wine structure, depth and ageability. The Merlot component fleshes out the mid-palate and adds flavors of bing cherry and plum. Although this wine is crafted to be enjoyed now, it will shine with 2 more years of bottle age and reap the benefits over the following 5 to 7.A blend of vineyards predominately from the alluvial fans of Napa Valley and Napa's eastern mountain ranges. Vineyards that were used to craft the 2005 were Beckstoffer's Dr. Crane and IV in Saint Helena, Beckstoffer's Tokalon in Oakville and the PlumpJack Estate in Oakville. The steep hillsides of Ink Grade provided Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. Ink Grade was also a predominant source of Merlot with a little coming from Orchard vineyard in theOak Knoll appellation.Anthony Biagi - winemaker Nils Venge - consulting winemakerThis is a California wine.
