Trying an aged Howell Moutain. Ripe blackberry, prunes, bramble, leather, melty rubber, gas station, candied pecans and cola on the nose. Mellowed and integrated ripe blackberry, prunes, char, vanilla on the palate, with some herbal spice and black tea on a nice long finish. Looks like folks weren’t impressed by the other reviews but I really liked it. :) — 3 days ago

This is a very tasty Riesling from Napa Valley.
Medium-bodied with medium-plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
This 6 year old is showing lemons, yellow apples, petrol, plastic, cream, earth, minerals, herbs, sea salt and white pepper.
I had it a year ago, and it seems like it is less fruit forward now.
Spicy and entertaining. Good by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and better when not too cold.
12.8% alcohol by volume.

Blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot & 3% Malbec, deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits with spice, herb and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, fig and blueberry with currants, cacao, pepper and earthy notes. Fine soft tannins, good structure, long finish, great mouthfeel, ending with cedar, fruit and earthy character. Wonderful! Very Nice. — 8 days ago
An unusual partnership between oak/vanilla (sweet) and bitterness >in a good way. Interesting wine! 85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 19 months in American and French oak. There is an oak/ vanilla sweetness with great fruity berries on the front & midpalate which transitions to a cocoa powder, black licorice, anise bitterness to a long finish. Very smooth, Medium+ bodied. Fun to decipher! My Costco..$10! We went through gas line 1st...loving this! — 25 days ago
