Duckhorn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 114326


Capturing the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a complex and beautifully structured wine with bright, uplifting acidity and a rich entry of dark brambly fruit, clove and mocha. Robust tannins and ripe berry flavors define the palate, along with layers of vanilla, nougat and sweet tea leaves. As the tannins evolve and resolve, they carry the wine to a long sweet tobacco leaf and cassis finish.

Wine EnthusiastBlended with 10% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, this wine is from two estate vineyards, one of which contains some of the producer's oldest vines. It offers a hearty helping of thick, dense black fruit, spicy clove, bay leaf and leather, structured by powerful tannins.

Wine SpectatorWell-oaked, with dill and cedar notes more prominent than the dried currant and wild berry flavors, ending with firm, grippy tannins. Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,150 cases made.
