It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain.
This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon, although still very young.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, tobacco, peppercorn, chocolates, graphite and dark coffee.
Dry on the palate with nice complexity.
Medium plus on the finish with grippy tannins and tangy cherries.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.
Not very big, but it's nice to see this moderate alcohol version of a Napa Cabernet.
Wine Spectator 95 points.
Already drinking beautifully, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
Tasty and spicy. Delicious and engaging.
Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged for 32 months in (100% new) French oak barrels.
13.9% alcohol by volume.

Crushed ripe cherry, bacon & fat, crushed Hemlock needles, granite, damp compost, slight barnyard; Ripe black cherry, dried blackberry, black currant, red pepper skin. Tannins persist. Drink 2025-32+
Much brighter on both nose/palate than my other Hermitage experiences. Perhaps I prefer the dried fruit/leather notes showing with more age...
Paired to lamb schnitzel, just wonderful together. — 7 months ago
