En Mag - this is my second time around and celebrated a deal closing - as in 2017 this wine delivered - amazingly it is getting better - this is from a single vineyard at 2000 feet on Howell - this is full bodied mid palette sweet tannins with a rich nose long legs black currant berries and and I think it is getting better - ten plus years left - dark purplish color - I LOVE It and made a nice splash last night — 8 days ago

Aloft

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

This wine IMO has matured and is in the ripe drinking window right now. This wine has some blackberry influence but a lot of the fruit in the front and middle seems to be boysenberry, black cherry, dates, and sweet plums. Compared to other vintages that I've had (they've all been more current in the last few years), they have all been darker for sure, but Aloft has always seemed to be a touch sweeter than the Charles Krug Cold Springs and has also usually had a bit more punch. I think this one is starting to show a tiny bit of age. I think it's been a while since I decided to open an 09 Aloft. Finished with some pepper notes and a little eucalyptus. Went well with a huge variety of seafoods in the fact that it wasn't a unidimensional blackberry bomb. Enjoyed on the last night of our beach trip. — 17 days ago

A much maligned vintage, which I personally don’t see in the quality of the wines, especially this. This is big, bold and luscious. Wonderful. — 4 days ago

Wow. One of my faves. When pouring at the taste of Howell Mountain event in Dallas, I would always go over to Susan to try to get as much of this as possible!

The only disappointment here is their price increase so quickly over the last few years. Truly a top notch SB, but hard to pay the premium these days.
