The 2009 Howell Mountain offers up scents of graphite, mulberries, blueberries, vanillin, chocolate and forest floor. The wine’s full-bodied mouthfeel, moderately high tannins, and spicy, structured personality result in a masculine-styled 2009 that requires 4-5 years of cellaring. It should last for three decades.

The 2009 Howell Mountain (today known as Las Posadas) emerges from a parcel on the back of this stunning property surrounded by trees known as ‘the corral’ planted in 2002. It is another breathtaking wine in this set of 2009s from David Abreu and Brad Grimes. Smoke, graphite, spice and a range of savory Howell Mountain aromas and flavors wrap around a core of dark fruit in a wine that dazzles from the very first taste. The 2009 is just starting to soften, making it a real pleasure to taste today. This is the first vintage that includes a touch of co-fermented Malbec. (AG)
