Winemaker's Notes

(From 2002 Vintage) 92 points Wine News: Exotic scents of cassis-blackberry fruit accented by a red meat note open with airing to reveal sweet vanilla oak and dark chocolate. Juicy and generous with polished tannins and harmonious flavors that replicate the nose. A wickedly rich wine. (1,200 cases) (Jun/Jul 2006)

    (From 2002 Vintage) The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot) is the finest Cabernet this estate has yet produced from their Howell Mountain holdings. A dense purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, creme de cassis, smoke, and crushed rocks are followed by sweet fruit, gorgeous density, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a layered, multidimensional mid-palate and length. With no hard edges, this flawless wine should drink well for 20-25 years.
