94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is loaded with dark, brooding intensity. Graphite, pencil shavings, mint, plums and black cherries emerge from a wall of powerful, yet well balanced tannins. Layers of rich, blue and black fruit flow through to the effortless, full-bodied finish. Give this rich Howell Mountain Cabernet a few years to soften. Even today, it is quite striking. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. - AG, December 2012
