At ten years old, still way too young (double decanted). Cherry red cigar box with currants. Velvety, rich structured 🍷

Enough of the Chardonnay, time for the real purpose of Fridays,
Great right off the bat, only going to get better with a decant. Love that nose as I poured it

08 Abreu Howell Mt is about two thirds Cabernet & the rest of it is CF, PV & Merlot. This is a full-bodied powerful beast. I've had it open for 2 hours. Color dark brick red. The Intensity... just on this nose is impressive with floral & perfume. All encompasscing black frnuits. Black raspberry, blackberries, stones/bedrock...with lingering spices. The tannins are still quite firm. There will be no worries, putting this aside for another 20+ years.

Very big, deep and intense. A bit much for me. Sizzles. Maybe it’ll come around?

The tannins were surprisingly supple. Dark cherry, plum and graphite on a soft easy going Howell Mountain. This is not the best bottle of the 2008 I have had.

This was my first Abreu and they are worth the price of admission. Big and powerful yet so refined. The fruit on this is gorgeous but also has these wonderful floral notes, wow just wow. Birthday Dinner WOTN
