    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is as deep and dark in color as it is in aroma and flavors. The nose is floral yet fruity with rich blackberry and cocoa aromas. The entry is elegant and soft with flavors of dark cherries, blueberry, cocoa, and spiced plum.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) emerges from the glass with dark fruit, crushed flowers, licorice and tobacco. There is plenty of character and personality in the glass, although some rough edges remain. The fruit needs a lot of air to emerge from beneath a wall of tannins. Still, this is an excellent wine, and will deliver plenty of enjoyment, especially if it is opened well in advance. Flowers and sweet red berries add lift and brightness on a crystalline finish laced with mint, tobacco and sweet herbs. The 2008 was aged in French oak barrels, 47% new. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
