Tasted at Hearts Delight press lunch. (Not my pic, I forgot to take one). I went into this thinking it would be big Napa Cab and wouldn't suit my palate. Then I tasted it and wow! Nothing green on this. Nice chalky minerality. I was excited to see this was from Howell Mountain as it then made sense to me why I was enjoying this more than expected.

Spice, mint, dark fruits. Screw cap threw me off at first, but the wine is showing beautifully.

Lush, sexy, and yet oh so rugged. Blackberries, blueberries with a hint of bramble, mountain sage and licorice. A kiss of perfectly integrated oak, and you get one good looking Cab. Definitely want to decant to get it performing to the best of its abilities.

Robust tannins and structure. There are flavors of toasted pecans, baking spices, blueberry pie, chocolate covered strawberries, anise, graham cracker, and tarragon.

Vintage 2012 - decanted, great immediately and after an hour. Mild fruit, nice minerality, very smooth on the finish. Went great with short rib - no surprise there!
