About the Winery:

Gavin Newsom and Gordon Getty established PlumpJack Winery in 1995, naming the property after one of Shakespeare's most memorable characters, Sir John "PlumpJack" Falstaff. PlumpJack's down-to-earth, fun-loving, irreverent nature shows in their wines. In 2005, John Conover, Gavin Newsom and Gordon Getty founded CADE Estate Winery on Howell Mountain as a complement to the valley floor terroir of PlumpJack Winery. Like PlumpJack, CADE takes its name from Shakespeare, who used the term to refer to the wine casks -or cades- used to transport wine from Bordeaux to England in Elizabethan times.

Notes From The Winemaker:

Our 2022 CADE Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, has aromas of green apple, green melon, guava, floral, honeydew melon, lemon, pineapple, ripe pear, and yuzu. On the palate are flavors of lemon curd, key lime pie, grapefruit, lemon zest, and citrus. The wine is bright and fresh and has a remarkable vibrant acidity on the finish. The grapes from Oso Vineyard bring out lemon, apple, and pear flavors, which we feel are great additions to this wine. The 2022 vintage was the largest production of CADE Sauvignon Blanc ever made because of the acquisition of Oso Vineyard. The addition of Sémillon adds notes of kiwi with slight minerality, and a touch of Viognier offers textural viscosity on the palate and floral notes on the nose.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Wine Spectator (2018):
"Vivid and distinctive, with passion fruit, lime and Meyer lemon flavors that mingle with details of honeysuckle and lemon thyme, finding harmony on the refreshing finish. Drink now. 7,845 cases made." - MW (web only 2019)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017):
"The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is composed of 94% Sauvignon Blanc with 3% Sauvignon Musque, 2% Sémillon and 1% Viognier. It features zesty notes of lemon and lime peel with nuances of crushed rocks, struck match and oyster shell. Medium-bodied with a wonderful racy line supporting the intense citrus and stony layers, it finishes on a lingering mineral note." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Oct 2018)
