This the first vintage with their new Howell Mtn. Vineyard in the blend, the 13th.

This very round, elegant & juicy. Dark currants/cassis, ruby, blackberries, creamy black plum & raspberries, signature HM blue fruit haunt, caramel, coffee, baking spices, dark Indian & Asian spices, dark chocolate, dark soils, clay and purple flowers. The finish very well balanced and polished. It persists endlessly.

Very muted and not like i remember it al all - a little too soft to have on a night with big Napa wines.

Blackberry pie with vanilla and cinnamon, cooked in cast iron over hickory coals. Black, black leather and a breeze of sage. Concentrated, young, but well integrated and in balance for a youngster.

Young but oozing class and depth, superbly fragrant nose and a multi layered palate with long finish and big but approachable tannins. This is a wine that immediately gets you thinking about investing in a case and watching it develop. Really good stuff.
