    January 4, 2022 - The wine looks purple colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black currant (cassis), blackberry, blueberry, cherry, vanilla, violet and tobacco. It tastes like blackberry, blueberry, red currant, cherry, vanilla, oak and violet. The body is full. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity. Rich and layered wine.

    December 1, 2021 - One-hour decant through a screened and aerating funnel. No sediment. Wine gave off a muted nose of black fruit compote during decant. After resting, and in the glass: wine was clear; translucent crimson with no bricking and a moderate clear halo. Initially nose was blueberry pie, with the pie crust aromas in the fore supported by the fruit and some flowers. After about 50 minutes into consumption, the fruit and pie crust swapped places in the nose. In the mouth: black cherries, currants and a hint of vanilla on a long finish. While the wine was very good, I got the feeling I jumped the gun on this one and that the wine has not approached its peak. I will leave my other bottles alone for a couple of years.

    November 20, 2021 - Enjoyed this with a Filet Mignon at steakhouse. Was absolutely ready to drink, although has plenary of life left if you choose to lay down for a while. As usual Howell Mtn didn’t disappoint
