Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Deep ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Beautiful nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, peppercorn, cedar, vanilla, toast, tobacco, chocolates, spices, wild flowers, light alcohol and herbs.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, black currants, coffee, cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, peppercorn, spices, tobacco, chocolates and light cola.

Long finish with round tannins and cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain.

This 6 year old is starting to drink very nicely. Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly. Would continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

Fruit forward, rich and opulent. Spicy, tangy and interesting.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly, so be patient.

A great sipping wine, and will pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

Aged for 19 months in oak barrels. Only 16 barrels produced. Unfiltered and unfined.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Reflection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

A very nice wine. Dense cab profile, with very balanced tannins and a lingering finish. Built for depth and storage, but also drinkable now with decant. — 4 years ago

ForePlay Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

lil' juicy fruit, more pronounced at room temperature versus cellar temp. Bramble, black fruits and cassis liquor. Tannins are present yet balanced coupled with the fruit and acidity. Gobs of black fruits and supple cream woven throughout. Ending with dry extracted tannins. — 7 years ago

Moscatel dulce

Una moscatel Dulce con buena acidez por 9€. ¿Puede haber mejor RCP? Melocotón, albaricoque en nariz
Aterciopelado, sedoso y con volumen, buena acidez, fresco, con final agradable y largo recuerdo. Un vinazo de postre.

Los Carneros Chardonnay 2016

A buttery Chardonnay with some effervescent components. This not Rombauer buttery category, but enough malolactic to give that creamy texture that I love on occasion. — 4 years ago

Opened it a year ago and was let down. Showing much better now. Not sure if more time in the bottle will help. — 6 years ago

Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Home Run Haber does it again. Smokin’ nose with deep blue fruit and icy mint. Palate shows the same with some nice chocolate notes on the finish. Can’t say enough about this Diamond Mountain gem! — 6 years ago

@Shay A for what it’s worth I’ve had both in the -13 and -14 vintages and preferred Diamond both times. Worth a try if you get a chance.
