    September 16, 2014 - I wish I had more of this. This is in a very good place right now. The tannins have softened just enough to be velvety, but the power and balance of the fruit still carries the wine through. Deep, dark wine with notes of black current, cherry, tobacco leaf, cedar and char with a touch of gravel.

    August 25, 2014 - Lovely expression of Howell Mountain terroir! Tight red fruit will shine brighter once tannins subside a bit. Delicious, but time will surely round out and enhance this wonderful CAb. Initial cocoa nose blew off rather quickly to reveal lovely red fruit. My six pack is gone, but I did purchase this to keep my greedy fingers from opening the 09 Cade HM Estate...

    June 29, 2014 - Really spectacular. Full bodied without being overbearing, with a long finish full of dark berries.

    June 7, 2014 - What a great way to start the night off. Took about an hour to open up. Would buy again!

    May 16, 2014 - PnP'd, the wine opened up by the 2nd glass. Great nose, with a taste of dark fruits. A big & very good Howell Mtn Cab.
