Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has a beautiful dense ruby/purple color, a luscious nose of black fruits intermixed with crushed rocks, sweet jammy strawberries and chocolate, and a long finish. Full-bodied, the wine shows some background subtle oak, chewy texture, and plenty of freshness in the heady finish. This wine is approachable now, but should drink well for 15-20+ years. A I said last year, this relatively new producer is off to a flying start. Winemaker Sean Capiaux (who has his own Pinot Noir operation) seems to be doing some stunning work with this 35-acre vineyard, planted with 29 acres of Cabernet and the rest other Bordeaux varietals. There is also a small cuvee (under 1,000 cases) of Cabernet Sauvignon from Mt. Veeder. Tasting through some barrel samples of 2006 showed this to be a very fine vintage, if not up to the level of 2005 and 2004, at least at this stage in their development."
