Very nice bottle that's drinking well with some decanting. Red fruited and light crimson color, this wine has nice acidity and sweet tannins that keep it fresh. Refined for Howell Mountain with decent finish.Not a ton of complexity at this point but still young.

Much better after a long decanting period (upwards of 3 hours).

Balanced wine, good mountain fruit, strong tannins. A bit grippy, will settle with some time. No heavy handed oak, which is great.

Very beautiful and delicious wine, slightly different in style from traditional cabs, a little lighter in weight but shows more delicacy and elegance. Ruby/garnet hue, almost translucent in color, very pretty and elegant. Unfiltered and natural, throwing some sediments. Smoky and chalky overtone with great minerality, surrounded by cedar, lightly toasted oak, tobacco and leather, sprinkled with some spring flowers, revealing blackberry, blueberry, red currant and cranberry aromas, definitely going to the red-fruit zone a little bit. Medium-bodied, this wine shows an abundance of blackberry, black cherry, plum on the attack with nutty character, leading to a solid structure of ripe tannin and fresh acidity. Medium finish, the nutty tone brings out quite a bit of fruit with cherry and plum in the aftertaste. Great show-case of its true varietal characters and the Howell Mountain terroir, yet, not lacking any of the complexity that makes a wine truly exciting! Truly an eye-opener of what such a small producer is capable of achieving! Drink now, but this wine will age gracefully.

Good tannin structure, good fruit. Overall good wine, not the spectacular from Howell Mountain one would expect, but a strong bottle at a fair price.
