At ten years old, still way too young (double decanted). Cherry red cigar box with currants. Velvety, rich structured

08 Abreu Howell Mt is about two thirds Cabernet & the rest of it is CF, PV & Merlot. This is a full-bodied powerful beast. I've had it open for 2 hours. Color dark brick red. The Intensity... just on this nose is impressive with floral & perfume. All encompasscing black frnuits. Black raspberry, blackberries, stones/bedrock...with lingering spices. The tannins are still quite firm. There will be no worries, putting this aside for another 20+ years.

The tannins were surprisingly supple. Dark cherry, plum and graphite on a soft easy going Howell Mountain. This is not the best bottle of the 2008 I have had.
