Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Celebrating my son’s first #birthday certainly merits the serving of some lovely wine 🍾🍷 What a wonderfully challenging yet humbling year it’s been raising a tiny baby into a little boy with a big heart, a loud laugh, and a captivating smile. I hope and pray today’s celebration is but one of many chapters.

Incredibly young (of course) and quite dormant. Decanted for 3 hours, probably needed another 1-2 at a minimum. Only until the final glass did some more defined notes begin to unveil themselves: vanilla, blackberry, baking spices, cassis, coffee grounds, mocha froth, and herbaceous qualities. Super powerful, yet it’s the blossoming gracefulness that will have me circling back on this in another 8–10 years.

Beringer Vineyards

Vogt Vineyard Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

One of the best SVD Beringer I've had in a while. It says everything from dark roasted black and blue fruits on the nose and entry. Mulling spices, chocolate, Espresso bean. Very dense. Tannin has resolved slightly, giving a little more depth and roasted character and black pepper spice to the finish. Gonna seek out more of these SVD Beringer Cabs. The prices for current releases are a little bit unrealistic IMO, but these can be found on the secondary market for extremely competitive prices. — 17 days ago

18 year old magnum stole the show, wasn’t exactly a major wino show but still beat out the 2012 Venge, wasn’t even close while tasting side by side
These older York Creeks continue to blow me away

Gamey on the nose and slightly overripe or very very ripe fruit. Not my vibe. It’s good. Don’t get me wrong, but overpriced. #washingtoncab #washington #washingtonwine #cabfranc #merlot — 10 days ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Great Howell mountain cab expression. Tannic profile wonderfully integrated, almost imperceptible on the front end but building into a finely tannic finish. Complex fruits and coarse earth. Not as much mintiness as my previous tasting — 9 days ago

Estate Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Typical Howell Mountain style with very firm structure and excellent dark garnet color and high acidity. This baby needs decanting for not less than 2 hours and is still improving 36 hours later. It’s a very sturdy wine, enjoyable on its own or paired with a beautifully charred rib eye. I’m worried that Plumpjack will increase its price for this. Cheers! — 11 days ago

Very pleased with this showing. Displayed a nice bouquet on Sunday evening. Notes of sandalwood and coffee and tobacco on the palate. Tannins are still prominent, which is a good sign for cellaring. Nice maple-like notes with dark berries on the finish. — 14 days ago
