I'm rating this a 9.5 because I'd like to dream there is something that gaps the last 0.5 to perfection. But honestly unsure if it exists.

Hunkering down for Hurricane Harvey with a Howell Mountain heavyweight! Lots of dark fruit, leather and herbs on the nose. Incredibly deep flavors of blackberries, cocoa, espresso and a little pepper on the palate. A bold wine with lots of sleek tannins. Very well structured with a great balance of fruit, acidity and tannins. The finish is very big and long lasting. A great wine.

Strong berry nose, subtle creme de cassis, strong dried blueberry flavor with well disguised alcohol ( present but not strong ) incredibly smooth with very gentle tannin. Sweet, bitter, tannin very complex and well layered. Bitter and beautiful, more creamy the more you taste. 98pts Robert Parker A blockbuster superstar, this inky/purple-hued 2012 is filled w creme de cassis, blueberry and mulberry fruit that hides any notion of its oak aging. Opulent, voluptuously textured, multilayered and stunningly rich with a finish that lasts 45+ seconds, this magnificent Cabernet should age effortlessly for two decades or more. But who can wait that long. $179.99 bottle
