Beautiful, elegant texture. I think this is their diamond mountain cab, but if it's not then it sure feels like it. Makes this cab too easy drinking. Super good.

Super concentrated Howell Mtn Cab. Mostly blackberry and plum, but has a nice hint of cocoa and dark chocolate. Super long cocoa finish. 2010 Vintage with a one hr decant.

A very elegant wine from the combined Mt Veeder and Howell Mtn Ladera vineyards. Silky smooth tannins and loads of dark berry, cocoa and leather. This is drinking very nicely right now.
