Captures all the nuance of Howell Mountain in its intensely savory personality. Graphite, lavender, menthol, crushed rocks, crème de cassis and wild flowers abound in this potent, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon.
Exudes pronounced plum preserves, blueberry pie and crème de cassis scents with an undercurrent of cigar box, mocha, licorice, chargill and tapenade. Full-bodied and packed with pure, vibrant black and blue fruits in the mouth,
The oak is dialed-up here, delivering a meaty, spicy and modern veil across both nose and palate. The fruit is ripe and fresh, in a concentrated and juicy mode, with blackcurrant flavors framed up in bold, assertive tannins. Classy cabernet.
A bit reserved, as the tannins and muscular nature combine to make for a closed showing. The density of the dark berry, earth and cedar flavors bode well, if you have the patience.
