External Reviews for Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
This elegantly balanced wine combines generous fruit-forward structure with age-worthy tannins and a long, satisfying finish. From its layered aromatics to its lush palate of flavors, this wine brings together an array of red and black fruit elements, including red currant, baked plum, blackberry and sweet black cherry. Adding further depth to this core of ripe fruit are notes of vanilla, molasses, allspice, fresh herbs and black olive.
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90A blend of four vineyards, this is an extremely impressive Merlot. It dazzles with rich, ripe black currant, cherry liqueur, raspberry, milk chocolate, smoky oak and spice flavors that are complex and go on and on through the finish. Beyond that is the texture, so refined and elegant, combining power and subtle elegance. Just a gorgeous, sensual Merlot. Drink now - 2010.Wine Tasting NotesA dense ruby/purple-hued effort displaying a big, sweet bouquet of chocolate-charred black currant and blackberry fruit. With medium to full body, supple tannin, and outstanding opulence as well as purity, it can be drunk now and over the next 10-15 years.
"Rich and concentrated, with a tight, plush mix of currant, fresh earth, herb, anise and mocha, all tightly focused, deep and complex. Ends with a long, pure finish that keeps the fruit and oak at the center. Drink now through 2014." 90ptsJLThe 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with a very smooth entry, excellent balance between oak and fruit, spicy tannins, and a lingering finish. The aroma is dominated by layers of blueberry, fig, and blackberry, accented by violet, spice, and a hint of bell pepper. The flavors are ripe with cassis, raspberry jam, blackberry, toasted oak, and a touch of dried herbs on the finish. This is a california wine
