This the first vintage with their new Howell Mtn. Vineyard in the blend, the 13th.

This very round, elegant & juicy. Dark currants/cassis, ruby, blackberries, creamy black plum & raspberries, signature HM blue fruit haunt, caramel, coffee, baking spices, dark Indian & Asian spices, dark chocolate, dark soils, clay and purple flowers. The finish very well balanced and polished. It persists endlessly.

Savory Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Not seeing the $100.00 price tag, $135.00 on Release probably the most disappointing 98 point wine I’ve had.
So Many $50-$75 out perform this one
How Jeb gave this a 98+ I have no idea
Any Rivers Marie cab between $100-$135.00 will blow this away, not mention Mike Smiths wines

Isn’t bloody hot there still for a Cabernet? It’s roasting here. I have one when the sun goes down.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Great texture and oak integration. Tannins are lively, but inviting at this young age. A brightness that lifts a core of dark fruit with savory layers lingering just underneath. — 2 days ago

Fun Friday evening with great wines.

Checks all my boxes. I love Howell Mtn fruit. Everything about it is dark and ripe, yet powerful and smooth. Iron fist in a velvet glove. Sweet baking spices accompanied by blue fruit, blackberries, dark cocoa and nutmeg on the nose. Soft with a powerful core of dark fruit. Rich, but not boozy or flabby. Drinking fantastic right now with an hour decant.

True Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

09 wasn’t my favorite vintage from them. This needs a few hours of decanting. Didn’t do that...time wasn’t on my side. -at Manta -Mauna Kea, Hawaii — 6 days ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This baby delivered. Bold Howell Mountain nose and taste. Dark chocolate, hints of coconut and mint, with some vanilla and butterscotch layers that washed ashore with the rich black cherry waves of goodness! — 18 days ago

In the St. Tropez bay on Crystal Serenity enjoying this lovely wine with Beef Wellington. Opened the bottle last night with prime rib and saved half the bottle for tonight. Better tonight than last night by a degree. — 2 days ago
