The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (83% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot) is the finest Cabernet this estate has yet produced from their Howell Mountain holdings. A dense purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite bouquet of black raspberries blueberries camphor creme de cassis smoke and crushed rocks are followed by sweet fruit gorgeous density a full-bodied mouthfeel and a layered multidimensional mid-palate and length. With no hard edges this flawless wine should drink well for 20-25 years. </br>One of the superstar estates on Howell Mountain winemaker Sean Capiaux is the force behind these impressive reds. Capiaux also makes his own wines (almost all Pinot Noirs) under the Capiaux Cellars label. Those cuvees will be reviewed in the February 2010 issue in the Santa Cruz Mountains Mendocino and Sonoma report.

Bright deep red-ruby. Black fruits licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose. Deep dense and tactile with an enticing silky texture and an intriguing saline nuance to the flavors of black cherry cassis and dark chocolate... Bright deep red-ruby. Black fruits licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose. Deep dense and tactile with an enticing silky texture and an intriguing saline nuance to the flavors of black cherry cassis and dark chocolate. There's a medicinal quality here that contributes to the complexity of this sweet but energetic wine. Really quite three-dimensional in its palate feel.
