Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

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+.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

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.

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.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
