Howell Mountain, Napa Valley

Abreu Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

1.5 hour decant(lots of fine sediment). A monumental dark crimson purplish color with little signs of aging. On the nose: beautiful notes of blackberry, stewed meat, dark plum, spice, forest floor, and sandalwood. Taste: creamy, smooth, rich, and such a polished wine with dark fruit, smoke, earth, graphite, tar and a long spiced mineral finish. This Goliath is drinking well at year 15 with the decant, but no hurry, it's ready to go a number of more years. What a treat this Saturday night! — 7 days ago

Deep ruby colored. Black fruit, cedar, Smokey oak on the nose. Blackberry, cassis, cherry, tobacco, cocoa. Nice semi dense mouthfeel. Well balanced. Softening tannins. Nice thorough finish. 30 min decant is a good place to start this one now. — 3 days ago

Beautiful nose of blackberry, violet, cedar, leather, charcuterie, dried herbs. So soft and integrated now. This is at peak with purity of fruit shining through despite the age. Great stuff. — 7 days ago

Open for business!
Dark fruit, Coffeebeans, dusty spice notes, toast, oak, smoke and vanilla, all balanced in a beautiful, hedonistic yet elegant and distinguished way.
Magnificant wine…
