2018 Howell Mountain Merlot
Our Howell Mountain Merlot is back. Often spoken of but rarely seen, this is a wine that has been described as a Cabernet drinkers Merlot and is an excellent reminder of how great these wines can be. It's one of those, if you know- you know wines. Ruby red with a purple hue introduces you to the intense blackberry, wild plum, and cinnamon stick aromas. On the palate the wine is rich with broad tannins and flavors of wild strawberries, cherry preserves, lavender, and toffee with integrated tannins and a creamy texture with a long powerful finish.
