Bright, deep red-ruby. Wonderfully mellow and complex on the nose, offering everything from fresh dark fruits to chocolate, red licorice, flowers and graphite minerality. Pure liquid silk in the mouth; at once sharply delineated and edge-free thanks to superb harmonious acidity, possessing a wonderfully tight core of juicy fruit. This very dry, classic Howell Mountain Cabernet finishes with serious dusty but sweet tannins and will still improve. Stunning wine. (ST)
The 1991 Howell Mountain Cabernet is noticeably thicker and more highly extracted than the 1992 and 1993 vintages. It is a huge, rich, powerful wine with great depth, as well as a boat-load of tannin. (RP)
It all comes together in the 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. A huge, powerful wine, the 1991 is beautifully expressive today. An exotic melange of dark red/blackish fruit melds into smoke, incense and spices as the wine opens up. Air softens some of the contours nicely, making the 1991 hugely appealing today. This is a very pretty Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the near and medium-term. (AG)
A dense, potent, rich, dark-colored wine, with immense tannins and a rich core of earth and leather-scented Cabernet fruit. Offers hints of mint, rose petal and anise, and at midpalate it gives a glimmer of polish before finishing with a wall of chewy tannins. Patience required. (JL, Web Only—2002)
