Tasted this alongside the Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon from Mount Veeder. Both incredible wines but this one just had a bit more of a punch to it. Dark ruby purplish red. Insanely tight to start on the nose with some raspberries. Developed some earthy tones like truffles and mushrooms with a few hours in the glass. Not as fruity as the Mt. Brave and pretty tight with some austere mountain berries. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Definitely needs some time to fully balance out. Long and dry finish. Very impressive and everything coats the glass. Drink from 2017 till 2036.

Can't believe how well this was drinking with a short decant.

@Mike R Thank Bud for an awesome bottle of wine that I have never had before. Very solid., Dark fruit on the palate: blackberry, dark cherry are what I immediately picked up. It seems to hit the Front and Mid Palate really well but the back palate not as much. The finish was a little short....I was hoping that it would just keep going since I was enjoying it so much ch!! It was a great lush wine which was enjoyed tremendously by all!! Thank you so much my friend!!!

Not as good as I would've expected for Howell mountain fruit in 2012. Very fruity. Jam-like. Also tannic.
