This is a really opulent wine, yet fully balanced and not over the top. Deep plum, blackberry and even blueberry aromas and flavors. It just fills the mouth with full, dark fruit. It has very good structure, with nice tannins that give it a long, long finish. Good price point also, given the overpriced market for California cabs. Tasted several times with consistent results. The winery is a great one to visit too.

Clear medium ruby in hue. Clean aromas of black cherry, cassis and hints of minerals and violets. Dry, intense palate of black and red currant, some intervening red fruit characters and oak. A medium bodied Howell Mountain cab with medium ETOH and tight tannins that do seem to grip at first but fade into the soft finish. Let this one age a bit more and/or decant.

Solid big cab. Give it 45 mins in the glass and you will be rewarded with a few layers of good fruit.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
