Winemaker's Notes

Close to maturity with a classic rich mouth feel and cherry jam aromas.

Pair with grilled duck with a fruit sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"The massive 1987 Cabernet Sauvignon-Howell Mountain is super-rich, extremely tannic, and very long."
94 Points

"Full medium ruby. Blackberry, cassis, cracked pepper, minerals, maple syrup and tar on the nose. Smooth but powerful in the mouth, with dark berry and mineral flavors enlivened by excellent vinosity. A dense, highly aromatic wine with terrific verve. Finishes with powerful but sweet tannins and palate-staining dark berry flavors."
