    June 9, 2021 - One of my favorite Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignons. Aromas or violets, graphite, licorice and black cherry. Complex flavors of plum, blackberry and silky tannins that bring black fruit and minerality through a 20-second finish.

    October 24, 2020 - Decanted for 5 hours. This is fantastic. Amazing nose with tons of fruit and a little floral. Blackberry and a little cherry on the palate. Very enjoyable tannins. Some time might improve this but this is ready to go now. 93-94 points.

    July 6, 2020 - Drank this as a PNP which was a mistake. Drank with 5 other people so it went pretty fast. It did develop and open up over the hour I drank it but it was obvious this needed much more air or more time in the bottle. It was dark purple in color with typical big Howell Mountain fruit to go with big Howell Mountain tannins. I drank a 2016 a few months ago which I thought was better and weirdly drank really well as a PNP. In my opinion the 2015 is not in the same class as the 2013 and 2016 but still very good. If drinking now this most definitely needs a decant.

    August 21, 2019 - I love Cabernet Sauvignon made by Danielle Cyrot. The Howell Mountain and Reserve are my favorites and this 2015 HM is simply exactly what I like in a wine. Decanted for 90 minutes, it offered aromas of black fruit and flowers. The wine is layered with blackberry and red cherry fruit, plums, licorice and a wonderful minerality. Great now with upside (for my taste at least) over the next 3 - 7 years!
