About this Wine:
There’s just enough tannin upfront to reveal its hillside origins but a dense, black-fruited core almost overwhelms the structure making the wine immensely pleasurable now. The multiple layers reveal crushed rock, blue and black fruits, graphite and white flowers.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very typical wine from this appellation. Spices, grilled herbs and new leather add considerable complexity to the dark fruit. I especially admire the finesse and fabulous overall sense of harmony here. This is a highly representative Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon." - Antonio Galloni (12/2011) 

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Good ruby-red. Sexy, musky aromas of currant, mocha and leather. Then suave and fine-grained in the mouth, with lovely energy and finesse to the red berry and spice flavors. The firm, persistent finish features big but ripe and harmonious tannins." (5/2012)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Ruggedly tannic, yet showing generous ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's intense and persistent. Keeps its focus." - JL (10/2012)
