95 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain comes from an elevation of nearly 2,300 feet, from a vineyard planted in red volcanic, rocky soils. Rich, full-bodied, and possibly the star of an impressive line-up of wines, this is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Strikingly rich, opaque purple in color, with mulberry, boysenberry, blackberry, graphite and flowers, the wine is rich, chewy, full-bodied, multi-layered, and just a sensational example of Howell Mountain. Sadly, most Napa Howell Mountain Cabernets of this quality sell for $200-plus, but this one is available for under $100, which is to the credit of the folks at Robert Craig. This is 25- to 30-year wine, although thereâs no harm in drinking it sooner.
" This wine
is produced from our 9.5-acre estate vineyard,
perched along the summit ridge of Howell Mountain at 2300â. The Howell Mountain AVA
begins at 1400 feet and includes vineyards that sit above the inversion layer and fog line.
Considered our flagship release, the Howell Mountain Cabernet is the defining wine of
our portfolio â a rare and extraordinary wine from a superb vineyard. Though the tannin
structure is off the charts each year, the tannins are supple and round, allowing a measure
of grace in youth for such a long lived wine." - Winery
