About

Rating:

96

I think the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is every bit as successful as the 2016 yet has a touch more austerity and obvious structure. Offering terrific dark, chocolate fruit as well as resinous herbs, sage brush, and graphite aromatics, it’s medium to full-bodied, with a beautifully layered, textured mouthfeel and a great finish. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following 15 years or more.
