2013 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2013 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous and multilayered wine that showcases the complexity of all seven of the Bordeaux varietals that we farm. The wine is dark purple in color, with an opaque center, and ruby red rim. Aromas of raspberries, blackberry liquor and cherry pie. Expressive fruit concentration with sweet caramelized oak notes, evolving into creamy sweet vanilla. Very rich and dense with textural, supple and velvety tannins.
"Deep, inky and powerful, the 2013 Howell Mountain is a classic wine endowed with tons of regional character and personality to burn. The inclusion of all seven Bordeaux varieties in the blend adds layers of nuance and complexity. Hints of game, smoke, licorice and dark spices add nuance to a somber, brooding Cabernet."

"Dense purple in color, with notes of mulberry, blackberry, graphite and spring flowers, the wine has great fruit, a dense, full-bodied mouthfeel, and wonderfully sweet, well-integrated tannin. The acidity is sound, the purity impressive, and the wine long and reassuring. Drink it over the next 20+ years."
