(from a crop level reported to be 1.8 tons per acre, from an altitude of 2,300 feet): Good deep, bright ruby. Aromas of cassis, espresso, licorice and dark chocolate. Deep and sweet but tightly wound, with highly concentrated flavors of black fruits, licorice and violet. Dense and very long, finishing with piquant pepper-and-spice lift and surprisingly fine-grained tannins for a mountain wine.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is an effortless and totally gracious wine. It doesn't have the overt weight and power of the Mt. Veeder bottling, instead all the elements are much more subtle. Make no mistake, there is plenty of underlying structure, power and depth. The essence of raspberry jam, flowers, mint and sweet spices is layered in the elegant finish. This is another wine that will require further time in bottle to show its best. The blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.
