Robert Craig, Howell Mountain Cuvee, Red Wine 2019 (Howell Mountain, CA)
Producer Notes: A higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon has found its way into this wine that is dark, deep, nuanced and supple. Sourced from young vines on our Candlestick Ridge Vineyard the 2019 HMC displays immediate Howell Mountain power in the glass with lavender, thorny fruits and mineral at the fore. Without doubt, its a slightly more serious wine than the 2018 wine released last year with a long life ahead in the cellar, though it will taste great if opened immediately after receiving it on your doorstep.
Vinous, 92 Points: The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Cuvée is a new entry-level wine in this range. The addition of Merlot works so well in softening some of the young Howell Mountain contours. Even so, there is plenty of energy underpinning the bright red cherry fruit. Mint, pine and floral accents resonate across the persistent finish. The 2019 is a jewel of a wine and a fabulous value.
