About this Wine:
Highest elevation Howell Mountain See-clone Cabernet Sauvignon handcrafted by the incomparable Thomas Rivers Brown, Black Sears Estate Cabs are incredibly concentrated, structured wines that gracefully walk the line between power and elegance. These are site-driven wines whose spice and minerality perfectly compliment the abundant black and red fruit – an homage to their mountaintop origins.


Ratings & Reviews

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2009 Vintage):
"Bright medium ruby. Cassis, black tea and licorice on the nose. Brooding, rather powerful wine with concentrated dark fruit flavors and a slight medicinal quality. Finishes with youthfully aggressive, granular tannins that coat the teeth. In an awkward stage now but may well merit an outstanding rating with several years of bottle age. Winemaker Thomas Brown noted that 2008 was generally a good year for hillside vines, as heat spikes were less of an issue at altitude. " (May/Jun '11)
