Cornerstone Cellars Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2014 starts with the classic Howell Mountain Cabernet aromas of ripe blackberries, cocoa, and some delicate minerality. It begs for another swirl, and as the wine opens up you’ll be seductively approached by aromas of crushed rock, pomegranate, and cedar. Showing impressive complexity on the palate with ripe fruit, evolving into dark cocoa, leather and spice, all wrapped in a subtle layer of sweet toasty oak. Bold and extracted, elegant and refined, this charmer delivers everything you would expect from a Howell Mountain Cabernet. Enjoy now or lay a few bottles down for a few more years.

Intriguing earthy complexity and dark cocoa notes with fresh cream, vanilla bean and blackberry preserves. Brooding and earthy palate of dark spice, chocolate and mixed berries with a core of red fruit that wells up from the center, delivering red currant and resinous tannins that finish creamy with good length.
