Winemaker's Notes

Unfiltered and unfined, Robert Craig Cellars' signature Howell Mountain Cabernet for 2004 is the most concentrated that they have produced – deep and seamless from the opening aromatics to a long-lived finish. Crafted from their estate vineyard atop Howell Mountain, this offering is redolent of the Appellation's complex terroir, exhibiting abundant dark red fruit, wild berry, white pepper and spice, enlivened by a Bordeaux-like mineral character. Fine, supple tannins are nicely integrated to create exceptional balance and complexity.

Aroma: An exotic perfume of dark fruit, warm spice and roasted coffee.

Flavors: Deep, abundant wild berry and black fruit flow down the palate, accented with pepper, clove, anise and bracing mineral notes.

Finish: Beautifully layered, complex flavors carry through on the finish, backed by fine, silky tannins.

This impressive Cabernet benefits from 30 minutes of decanting in a pitcher before enjoying.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
