Always delivers and remains one of the great Napa cabs at or about 100-125. Kudos. Cheers

This is young but very good. I think later it will be very very good. I hope to try this again later when it has more age.

Pungent aroma and then flavors of blackberries, with chocolate, orange and touch of smoke. The finish is mildly acidic and very long. 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Malbec 5% merlot 4% petit Verdot 3% Cabernet franc 3% carmenere 3% st macaire

Nose is smoke/must, getting no fruit. Palate is strawberry, rasberry (?), smoke. Representative of Howell terroir... just feel something is missing here. Markedly better at hour 3, menthol on the nose and more fruit on the palate.
