Cade Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2013

$28

CADE is Plumpjack's hot new winery on Howell Mountain.  Their Sauvignon Blanc is always delicious.CADE deals with 8 small growers (6 for Sauvignon Blanc 2 for Semillion). 39% of the fruit came from Oakville, 38% from Rutherford, 15% from Yountville and 8% from Napa Valley.  The 2013 vintage really made a truly distinctive Sauvignon Blanc. Enticing aromas of green melon, wet stones, cantaloupe, cut grass and vanilla bean are followed on the palate with flavors of guava, rose petal, gooseberry and vanilla. The 7% Semillion fleshes out the mid palate and adds a nice layer to the finish.

@Joe Lucca in the background cooking my dinner! These Italians have got this sh#% down - Game on! On the nose, the wine is playful with zesty white citrus fruits and maybe brioche. Deftly balanced on the palette with grapefruit and key limes. Finishes with an echo of citrus fruits - very nice.

Good acid. Nice mix of grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruit. More on the opulent side. One of the better Napa Valley sb's in my opinion.

A beautiful wine. You get just about every kind of melon aroma in the book with this from honeydew to watermelon to cantaloupe

Grapefruit, citrus zest and white flowers on the nose. Clean, lean and bright. Petrol, slate, lime zest, and white grapefruit ride on sharp acidity. Finishes a tad short.

Peach, pineapple, and tropical notes, hint of grass. Excellent sipping alongside a good book, the sound of waves, and approaching rain
