Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Same comments. Brooding wine tonight. Maybe with some air will start to sing. Nevertheless, nice ripe fruit, red and black. Earthy. Grippy tannins. Medium minis finish. — 8 days ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Let it open up for about an hour and a half. Tasted well even out of the bottle, but the extra time made it worth it. — 2 months ago

I have one of these stashed. Time to open yet? How long did you decant?

I would say it is a good time to open. We had it at a dinner party and everyone enjoyed it. We opened it before guests arrived and it decanted about 2 hours until drinking it with the main course.


Cedarman Howell Mountain Zinfandel 2017

2017 Turkey Zinfandel from Howell Mountain. I called the color deep purple. First thing that hit me is very creamy nose… vanilla cream that fills some donuts (heavy malo?). Fresh blueberry… lots of berries, it’s a berry salad. Also dried prune/fig, some chocolate and baked spices. Solid wine! I need to drink more zin!! — 3 days ago
