Vinous

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Pauli Vineyard is a deep, rich, exciting wine endowed with tremendous depth and intensity. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, incense, chocolate, leather and red fruit all run through this Cabernet. The warmth of the growing season has tempered some of the young Howell Mountain tannins and overall structure, which is not a bad thing at all. Ample and full-bodied with dramatic intensity, the 2017 will drink well with minimal cellaring.
