Wine Advocate | Rating: 95Another stunning wine from Howell Mountain, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Eagle Summit is spectacular. Mulberry, truffle, graphite and a touch of high-quality new oak is followed by a full-bodied, stunningly proportioned wine made by hot-shot guru Thomas Rivers Brown. This is a beauty of symmetry, intensity and remarkable fruit quality. Drink it over the next 20 years.Author: Robert Parker
