Nice..nice..nice!!!
I've always been a fan of '06 Napa and this was another great example.
The nose shows a bit (over)ripe but the wine delivers on the palate and is nicely layered and balanced.
94+ in my book.
Kudos to winemaker Karen Culler!

Expected more. You know, magnum and all. All the typical aromas and flavors. It was okay.

2006 Howell Mt. Beautiful nose with sweet oak aromas. Well developed tannins. Great with rib eye.

The cork disintegrated into a pile of soggy dust... jammy, cooked and overripe. Not as it should be.

Love Howell Mtn Fruit, dark cherry, some blackberry. Medium tannins. Bit of eucalyptus. Great bottle.
