83% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with small amounts of Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, St. Macaire, Carmenere, and a dash of Cab Franc to build an attractive, dark beauty with a solid backbone of tannins and bold acidity to support the earthy, savory flavors. Mouthwatering baked plum and blueberry compote are famed in vanilla oak, dark chocolate and charcuterie. Beautifully done, this was made to be enjoyed over the next two decades.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers a slightly darker, earthier profile that carries beautiful black and blue fruits, charcoal, bouquet garni, and some obvious minerality as well as a whiff of espresso. It's rich, full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully done. Drink it over the coming two decades. Based on 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% each of Merlot and Malbec, and the rest a mix of varieties, it spent 21 months in 80% new French oak.
