The 2018 Cuvée Howell Mountain is gorgeous. Best of all, it will drink well early, while the Cabernets soften in the cellar. Dark red/purplish fruit, rose petal, lavender, spice and leather all flesh out in the glass. The Cuvée marries the racy personality of the year with the character of Howell Mountain, a winning combination in my book. The Cuvée is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 4% Malbec, mostly from Robert Craig's Candlestick Vineyard, with a bit of fruit from the Summit Lake property. Drinking Window 2023-2033.

Wine Tasting Notes
This Cuvee shows all of the deep color, structure and complexity that one expects from Howell Mountain. The generous portion of Merlot allows for a velvet, supple mouthfeel to go with the exotic nose. But make no mistake, this is a Bordeaux Blend from Howell Mountain with the ability to improve for decades in the cellar.
