Mission Briefing

Codename:

A Howler of a Cab

Today’s Howell Mountain Vineyards 2010 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is an extraordinary wine! Our entire tasting panel hailed this wine as the very best of our recent 15-wine tasting.

This high elevation, single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, elegant and superb Cab that exemplifies the best of this best-in-a-decade vintage.

We’ve missed showcasing wines from our friends at Howell Mountain Vineyards (we first showed their wines back in 2008) and we are thrilled to have them back. Kudos to winemaker Bryan Kane for crafting today ‘s delicious, inviting and very highly recommended wine.

Tasting Profile

Look:

An absolutely gorgeous dark garnet at its heart, with a tinge of ruby red at the fringe of the glass.

Smell:

Robust and aromatic on the nose, with dark stewed fruit notes of sweet plum and blackberry trailed by sweet tobacco leaf, sandalwood, black pepper, mocha, sage, and a touch of fresh mint.

Taste:

An elegant representation of a high elevation Cab, with fruity notes of reduced boysenberry, black currant, and black cherry mingling with aged sandalwood cigar box, fresh forest floor, espresso bean, toasty oak, and sweet dark baking spices.

Finish:

Lush, concentrated, and inarguably delicious, this wine is smooth and supple upon entry, with a long and lengthy finish that will have you craving a second sip. At the very end, you’re left with a touch of sage and rosemary.

Pairing:

A perfectly seared filet mignon, served with goat cheese and a balsamic reduction.
