($65) Good ruby-red. Espresso, mocha and a chocolatey ripeness currently overshadow primary fruits on the nose. Broad and spicy but youthfully tight, with briary black fruit and dark chocolate flavors peaking through. Finishes with ripe but serious tannins and a juicy quality. Closed today and in need of patience.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain avoids the hard tannin and monolithic character that can be found in some 2006 Cabernets. Pure black raspberry, black currant, graphite, and subtle spicy oak dominate the aromatics. Full body, an admirable texture, a layered mouthfeel, and a long finish suggest this 2006 can be drunk now or cellared for a decade or more.

Wow. This is a monster cab. It screams "I CAME FROM A MOUNTAIN!". Took quite a while to open up but when it did it was pretty spellbinding. Unbelievable amounts of classic cabernet fruit strung on a suberbly balanced frame. Probably will not peak for another 7-8 years and should hold forever.....
