The goal of Casaeda Cabernet is to make a wine that says “Napa Cabernet” with deep fruit flavors and balanced tannins… a wine that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring but still has the depth of an excellent Napa Cab.
The 2010 Casaeda Cabernet has rich blackberry and red stone fruit flavors with soft tannins and a plush, velvety mid palate. The 2010 vintage produced a wine with softer tannins than usual for Napa Valley and because of this, one is approachable now, but could still age nicely for a good 6 – 8 years. 413 cases produced.
