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 there’s no harm in drinking it sooner. (RP)
Aromas of roses, blackcurrants and hints of vanilla beans. Full-bodied yet tight and dense. Big and rich wine but shows intensity. Lively finish.
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain) is another superb wine from Robert Craig. Deep, inky and unctuous, the 2014 strikes a compelling middle ground of richness, intensity and structure. Inky blue/purplish fruit, menthol, spices, lavender and mint flesh out in a super-expressive Cabernet endowed with real class. The Howell Mountain Cabernet stands out for its persistence, but the huge tannins need time to soften. (AG)
