Howell Mountain Cab.
Tannins have softened. There is sweetness, oak and a nice blackcurrant finish.

17/20 (92/100) элегантный аромат вишневого варенья, спелых ягод черники и ежевики, цветов и ванили. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, уже готовыми танинами. Черешневое во вкусе. Вино в начале своей зрелости. #dfwe2018

Decided to go a different direction this evening and open a Cakebread Dancing Bear. The 2012 got 99 pts from RP and is every bit as delicious as he says. Wonderful flavors of mulberries, blueberries, and blackberries jump from the glass. The color is an amazing inky purple. It's drinking perfectly right now. 95% Cabernet and 5% Merlot.

Amazing balance, huge red notes of berries and stone fruit. Deep purple with semi water ring and blue hue. I am in love with this wine ALMOST as much as I am with my wife;) and as easy as this is to drink it's difficult to believe that it's 14.8%
