Robert Craig Winery Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$89.99

Robert Craig has consistently ranked among the foremost Napa Valley Cabernet producers since its founding in 1992.  Limited. 95 Points Robert Parker: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain comes from an elevation of nearly 2,300 feet and tiny yields of 1.8 tons of fruit per acre. From red, rocky volcanic soils, it is a spicy, rich wine with dark mountain fruits, a hint of graphite and white chocolate (or is it mocha?). This is full-bodied, magical stuff that should drink well for at least ten years...Robert Craig is still one of the most consistent wineries in terms of quality and keeping pricing within realistic levels, not something frequently seen in Napa Valley."

Slight flowers on the aroma but then the flavors are intense with lush dark berries, chocolate, licorice and cedar that coat the tongue. The finish is tight.

Great bottle for the price. Lush Howell Mountain fruit. Well integrated tannins. Very approachable now but better with age.
