Markham Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Blackberry jam and cedar aromas are highlighted by intriguing notes of fresh tarragon. The concentrated texture of this Cabernet draws you in; soft yet gloriously chewy. Berry fruit flavors are accented by rich caramel and finish with a subtle mineral "sense of place." Decanting is conducive to immediate enjoyment and should bring out wonderful floral perfume common to our 2002 wines.

Smooth. Doesn't linger at the end the way I want it to...maybe needs more tannins. A little bit of spice at the head.
