2015, just released. Surprisingly approachable, and in its youth a bit one demonsional which may or may not open up with time. I like a little more earth on my Howell Cabs

Hearty wine that pairs well with a big steak

Well, I am so disappointed! I have a picture of me and the owner Spencer Clark himself enjoying a glass of his cabernet. I met him last year at a wine tasting event put on by a distribution fair here in Atlanta GA. I enjoyed meeting Spencer and sampling his wine. Two weeks later I received my order from Amizetta and I sent Mr Clark a bottle of my DrTodd's Lotion and a long letter thanking him for talking with me at the tasting and his kindness of giving me more wine than he should have. Its now 9 months later. I just ordered the cab last week and I just received his cabernet sauvignon and the cork was saturated with wine and the bottle was obviously deficient of at least 1/2 a glass of wine. I called the winery as soon as I pulled the wrapper off the bottle and discovered the cork. I was concerned because the cork was not recessed but protruding slightly under the wrapper. I removed the wrapper with my bare hand and in one quick pull, there it was!!!! A saturated cork. After being told someone would call me back twice in the past 6 hours, I decided to open the bottle since the winery is now closed. Then I went to the winery internet sight! No returns on wine damaged due to shipping problems and if they do decide to give you your money back, you have a 15% restock fee!!!!!!!# Geheuddhdbdidheisidbdidbjdheus!!!!!!!' ARE YOU KIDDING ME. This is a 85 dollar bottle of wine!!!!!!! I am so pissed!!!!! So I am now drinking the wine! It is RUINED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sour, Acidic, BAD BAD BAD!!!!!! I never heard from Spencer after sending him my letter and my Dr Todds Lotion 9 months ago, and now I can't even get a "Were sorry we did not send you a drinkable bottle of wine but we made 96 dollars off of you!!!!!! The lesson here is have your wine companies ship your wine with a EverCold foam refrigerant Brick and ask them about returns if the wine is bad. This company have zero customer service!!!!!!! I have to admit the wine is good. If your in a restaurant and you have a chance to have a glass, it will probably cost you 25 dollars a glass or 125 a bottle, but try it!!!! Im just never ordering from them again until they contact me and apologize!

Excellent. Cherry, tobacco, finish. Very complex but great for a young cab

Sweet to the nose. Dry with a hint of vanilla.
