2013 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
The first swirl offers dense, ripe fruit with layers of fresh herbs, cigar box and anise, just as we have grown to expect from mountain fruit. On the palate you will find a rhythm of subtle toast, succeeded by roasted dark coffee beans laced with hints of cocoa and vanilla. The texture is plush, elegant; with integrated tannins offering both substance and restraint. As always, a sturdy and sumptuous Howell Mountain Cabernet will develop and intensify artfully over time.
