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.
