The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is prodigious. There is something here that reminds me of a top-notch La Mission Haut-Brion, whether it is the subtle charcoal/burning embers character, the blue and black fruits, the hint of espresso roast, the saturated purple color, or the full-bodied, powerful flavors. This is an extraordinary, massively endowed wine, but with great precision and purity. Forget it for 5 years and drink it over the following 25+.

Bold, rich, intense and powerful, yet in a graceful, stylistic manner, with a taut mix of loamy earth, dried berry, black licorice, cranberry, dried herb and mineral flavors that coat the palate and retain their focus on a long, lingering aftertaste.

Much better than their Mt. Veeder. This is a deep wine with blackberries and dusty. It still has some grippy tannins on the end but I like that.

Deep dark ruby red, needs time out of bottle, used Vinturi on this wine, works very well, nose is beautiful, tannins a little harsh with a real nice long finish. Needs a few more years in the bottle, has great potential.
