This immaculate Howell Mtn property has produced some of the best wines in each of the vintages since 94 and this beauty is no exception. A blend of almost equal parts of Cabernet Sauv and Cabernet Franc the wine has definate Bordeaux roots. Medium brite ruby. Floral, spicy, red fruits, cassis, and plummy notes on the nose and palate. Silky entry, solid center and a killer 4&3/4-lapper finish. Should improve for another 1-2 and hold for 10-15. Absotively sensational bottle of juice. 92/95 35 by the box. 13.5% alc. WW

Looking over the inventory and decided this was the perfect lunch companion. Nose is accellerating rapidly and maybe the center is putting on more weight. Have to kick this puppy up a noth to 93. GORGEOUS stuff. WW

Pulled another for lunch today. The expansive nose shows violets, roses, red fruits, spices, vanilla and a touch of bakers cocoa. The entry is supple, weighty cemnter, and a solid 4&3/4th lapper finish. Needs another 2-4 to resolve some soft tannins. Seems to be slighly more developed on both the nose and palate. One killer bottle of juice. Maybe the next bottle will kick it up a notch. LOVELY!!!! WW
