About

96

A fragrant but savoury bouquet of perfumed blackberry, rich earth, fennel seed and cigar tobacco leads to a wine with lovely cut, vibrancy and concentration, structured around firm but refined 2013 tannins. Christopher Howell deserves more recognition for the amazing consistency, longevity and sophistication that his wines from this striking Spring Mountain site routinely achieve, as anyone with Cain bottlings from the '80s and '90s in their cellar can attest.

95 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

Lots of plum, clay tile and spice aromas from cumin to cloves. Decadent. Full body, ultra-fine and chewy tannins, and lovely energy and verve. Needs two or three years to soften but complex already.
