Bright ruby-red. Aromas of currant, bitter cherry, espresso and crushed rock, lifted by a violet topnote. Suave and smooth on entry, with a vibrant peppery nuance, then seamless in the middle; less rich and showy than the Mount Veeder bottling--in fact, still quite dry and uncompromising. The tannins are noble but this tight, high-pitched wine has a medicinal reserve that calls for several years of aging.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain bursts from the glass with expressive layers of roasted coffee beans, graphite, scorched earth and tar. It is a massive wine, yet shows remarkable balance and harmony from start to finish. Layers of racy black fruit build towards the muscular, virile finish. Simply put, this is a stunning example of Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. The 2009 Howell Mountain is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot and 2% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029+.
