Wifey detects butter on the nose. I note cedar and cassis. On the palate, this shows drying tannins with coffee notes, and moderate sweetness. Nice, but not as presentable as previous bottles of the same vintage. Outlier?

Sipping Fine Wine

David Sinegal who put together a team of winemaking all-stars to bring their vision to life, a blend of 93% Cab Sauv, 5% Petit Verdot & 2% Malbec, deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, floral spice and some cedar. On the palate rich fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry with notes of smoky oak, tobacco and cacao. Well balanced with acidity, nice mouthfeel with fine juicy tannins ending with fruit and earthy character. Nice will age well!

Day 3 in Napa in the books! Running a day behind on notes...Napa time runs slow AND fast!

Special wine. They are pulling fruit from below Arkenstone off Howell. Has everything Howell like in spades. It is dusty with chocolate, full of flavor from red, blue & black fruits, but has a special “mint” like Andes candy mint finish.

Big Howell mountain fruit, very ripe, smooth tannins and acidity, mostly balanced.
