Beautiful structure! This is nice for drinking young but also should age gracefully.

Always and constantly astonishingly amazing and drinkable...Even enjoyably so. Showcasing a vast and complex array of deep, dark fruit and grandpa's cigar box characteristics. With a bass clef preceding notes of black cherries, leather and a smidge of vanilla, and purple flowers and red berries following the treble clef, this Howell Mountain cab packs a punch without hurting anyone. My stomach is jealous of my mouth for getting it first.

This 2011 mountain fruit is ROCKIN. Gorgeous juice. It only took about 15mins to really open up. Dark berry medley on the nose with a touch of vanilla. Legs were model-esque long and the combo of earthiness, dark cherries enhanced the super well balanced and lovely mouth feel perfectly. Buying up whatever else I can find. 300 cases produced.

Delicious #HowellMountain #CabernetSauvignon. Great #Napa fruit flavors coupled with delicate, silky tannins.

This is a beauty already. Rich dark fruit, earthiness, and blackberry fill the senses. Lingering notes of leather, spice, black cherry. This is the new "E ticket" on Howell Mountain. But if you can find!

Fantastic wine, great structure but almost light for its species. Not a big bruiser.

Fig, ginger, earth, spice on the nose. Baked plum, velvety tannin with a lengthy fig newton finish. Wonderful example of a California Cab.
