    November 22, 2020 - Opened the night before. It was beautiful. Smooth and rich dark fruit. Very balanced.

    Wish I had more to see where it goes but glad I drank this now. It's in a great place.

    November 20, 2020 - Big and rich, but at this point the bright fruit has subsided and it came across as overly extracted and heavy in the mid palate.

    November 2, 2019 - Don't know what was missing from a bottle about a year ago, but this one was stellar. All the usual attributes, along with surprising complexity and surprisingly vibrant fruit for a wine this old. Extremely rich and very well balanced, with a great finish. Bought this from the winery for $72. Now, it's $110 (and I don't buy it anymore).

    October 6, 2019 - Rich, intense, racy red fruit - very much what I expect from Howell Mountain. There is a lovely dusty dryness on the finish too, though there is some congestion on the mid-palate. Paid $80+ tax for this and that's probably fair pricing.

    April 9, 2019 - flawed! I think this settles it for me about screw top vs cork. smells and tastes like metal. not good. worse than a corked wine
