A pretty special and rare opportunity now presents itself – the battle of the Napa and Bordeaux Cabernets! In one corner is the 2014 Cade Estate Cabernet, a 94-point champion from Howell Mountain in Napa Valley (a sister company to Plumpjack!) and in the other corner will be the 2015 Chateau Latour-Martillac! An incredible lineup, and for those who haven’t spent much time in the world of Bordeaux, this is the perfect opportunity to try a great one next to a great Napa without breaking the bank.
2014 Cade Cabernet
A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. A beauty, with mulberry, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, graphite and spice, the wine cuts a broad swath across the palate with no hard edges. The color is a healthy, deep purple and the wine full-bodied, rich, and while drinkable now, is capable of evolving for up to 15-20 years.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Latour Martillac has a spicy nose of cinnamon stick, cloves and aniseed with a core of red and black cherries and a waft of fragrant earth. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of juicy fruit and a firm frame of fine-grained tannins with bags of freshness lifting the finish.
