Howell Mountain, Napa Valley

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Rim to rim color density. Red and black cherries poke through cedar and sweet tobacco on the nose with dark chocolate chunks, plum, prune and date, toasted sesame, cinnamon, rose petal, and cardamom. Chewy tannins that roll satin-smooth initially, then cassis, black currant and licorice flip the script. Graphite and blackberry frame dark chocolate and mocha-tobacco, oak and black bread.

Corison

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Decant for sediment and pour(decent chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable murky magenta color with bricking. On the nose: beautiful nose of stewed black fruit/currants, floral, herbaceous, burnt embers, spearment. Taste: classic old school Napa, juicy, balanced, savory wine with dark cherry, baking spice, smoke, sweet tobacco and a nice long earthy cocoa finish. YUM! Drinks well at year 20 and glad to have another bottle. — 16 days ago

Honig

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

6 person cab tasting one 1st place vote and mostly middle place with currant and blueberries on the start that turned into heavy spices on the mid and back pallet but the most expensive cab in the tasting by a lot so not impressed for the price compared to the lot but still a high quality wine — 4 days ago

Continuum

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

My last two bottles of Continuum have both been below average.

1hr+ decant. Dark red color. Nice nose of mature cherries, earth, and subtle baking spices. Wine was tannic, spicy, and unrefined. Medium plus depth but weak finish. Disappointing for the price.

Oh man, I loathe that type of experience which such high-end wines. I haven’t had much of this, but it’s typically standout. I have a few 07’s lurking. I hope I haven’t left em too long. Overly tannic is unusual for this wine. Direct from the winery?

The ‘12 I had a few months ago was even worse. Got from a good friend who’s been buying direct for a long time.

Dominus Estate

Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

So appealing for such a young Dominus. Bursting aromatics of ripe currants, blueberries, baking spice, flowers, green leafs, pepper, iron. I know Dominus ages gracefully but this is a treat to drink already today. — 12 days ago

Old school Napa 👍🏼

Insignia Estate Grown Napa Valley Red Wine

Full bodied and flavourful. Sweet dark fruits, methol, crushed rock, herbs. Fresh finish with fine grained tannins. To me this has that polished silky Stags Leap feel to it. — 12 days ago

Beaulieu Vineyard

Private Reserve Georges de Latour Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

9.1

Cattail creek wine dinner. An exuberant nose shows dark and ripe fruit aromas of black raspberry, red currant, and black cherry. This full bodied wine has a broad palate that is multilayered with flavors of cocoa, amaretto, and espresso. Paired with pepper crusted beef carpaccio. — 8 days ago
