Readers seeking earthiness, as well as blackberry, blueberry, and floral characteristics, should check out the saturated ruby/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. It is a medium to full-bodied, tannic, impressively-endowed, pure effort that is gorgeously balanced and intense. Its tannin is powerful, and thus it requires 2-3 years of cellaring. This is an immensely admirable offerings from Robert Craig. This impressive, concentrated red reflects a synthesis between the elegant, austere Bordeaux-styled Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, and the extravagant, ripe, jammy characteristics found in wines fashioned from California's warmer micro-climates as well as richer soils.
Wonderful ripe plum, black cherry and toasty oak flavors fan out and gain nuance, with hints of tea, tar, anise and sage. Finishes with notably supple tannins.
