The enormous 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a super-powerful fabulously-concentrated 50-year wine. Aromas and flavors of blackberry/cassis jam minerals and subtle oak are found in this extravagantly rich gargantuan Cabernet Sauvignon that should age effortlessly for half a century. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050.

Dense juicy flavors of dark berries dominated by rather penetrating acids. Tougher and even more backward than the Napa Valley bottling but longer and sweeter on the back end. Finishes with powerful toothcoating tannins. Both this and the Napa bottling show much stronger acidity than they did from barrel last winter a few months prior to the bottling. 90+
