Packed with a rich, earthy core of currant, mineral, anise, sage and cedar. Quite tannic in this tasting, the fruit poured through on the finish.--1987 California Cabernet horizontal. Best from 2000 through 2010. -JL

The massive 1987 Cabernet Sauvignon-Howell Mountain is super-rich, extremely tannic, and very long. It needs at least 7-8 years to soften and should last for up to 20.

Smooth but powerful in the mouth, with dark berry and mineral flavors enlivened by excellent vinosity. A dense, highly aromatic wine with terrific verve. Finishes with powerful but sweet tannins and palate-staining dark berry flavors.
