The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (and finished with a screwcap), cuts a broader swath even than the regular bottling, shows sightly sweeter tannin, perhaps more ripeness, but is plush, voluptuously textured, deep, full-bodied and impressively endowed. There is no reason to defer gratification, as this wine is already singing and expressive. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. (RP)
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is bright and aromatically lifted, but it also has tons of depth and fruit voluptuousness. This is another fairly open-knit, opulent Howell Mountain Cabernet that emphasizes accessibility over structure. The Reserve has more richness, intensity and concentration than the Estate, but it is pretty similar in style. (AG)
Balanced, deep, pure and precise, with a firm core of red and dark berry flavors and shades of mocha and cedar. For all that immediate appeal, there's also a wonderful sense of harmony and finesse that builds and lingers through the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2029. (JL)
Lots of blackberry, black-licorice and walnut aromas follow through to a full body, chewy and rich tannins and a savory finish. Bigger style but shows tension at the same time. Give it three years to soften. Try in 2020.
