December 12, 2015 - Have to agree with the buzz on this B-E-Utiful Cab!! Have had earlier vintages, and this bottling and winery continue to impress. Oak is up front, but not overpowering the deep rich Black and red berry combo. Some mid palate tobacco, and very nice finish with some graphite. Lovely stuff.
December 1, 2015 - Great wine that is just coming of age. Deep, dark and dense blackberry core with notes of vanilla, graham cracker crust, pie spice, and black pepper. The wine was served pop and pour although it appreciated over the 2 hours it was enjoyed. From the start this one was a dark maroon full bodied frothy and luscious pour with blackberry and vanilla that just jumped out of the glass. The palate is full bodied mountain cab. This wine has all the fruit and vanilla characteristics of Howell Mountain, yet has a lot of Spring mountain spicy characteristics that just make it hedonistic. Finished long with black pepper and pie spice that abound. This one still has a LOT of life left in it. I would love to drink 10/11/12 verticals. The wine is going to continue to drink well for 10-15 years, but I would say it's probably a year away from really being "ready." Drink 2017-2032.1 person found this helpful Comment

October 1, 2015 - Stunning. This is a huge vintage for a non Kashmir bottling. Massive fruit, great tannin, and loads of character.

June 8, 2015 - Beautifully balanced and seamless wine where the lush fruit is the star. Red and black fruits in a dry, silky package. Dark, translucent wine. If it adds some complexity, it will be outrageous.

June 3, 2015 - Really enjoy this. Color of deep, dark red. Scents of blackberry and other dark fruit. Taste of blackberry and other dark fruit, also good but not overpowering tannins.
