The first serving of this wine I gave it an 8.5. It was after the second tasting that I gave it a 9. Full body fruit forward. Well balanced. Good but not great. $85

Deep purplish red. Layered with dark mountain berries and baking spices. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Restrained with gravel, black cherries, dusty and dark cocoa. Long finish. Drink till 2034. Will revisit tomorrow.

Not a bad wine for a cheesy Vegas business event dinner. Medium body, concentrated fruit, monster tannin. Will probably rate up in a few years when things mellow out.

Howell Mtn Tasting - Tasting a lot of wines though and in the same glass so I find it unfair to take these ratings seriously. Second best of the night. Also tried their Merlot (no pic) which was very nice especially after this many Cabs and Zins.

Been on a Howell Mountain binge for a while. Loving the tight mountain fruit and Volcanic soils giving the spice background. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. Probably needs more time in the bottle. I think it will then loosen up.
