One of my favorite Howell Mountain Cabs... Huge berry fruit, very dark, tight right now, but has huge potential. Loved it.

Good full ruby. Aromas of crushed blackberry and blueberry, bitter chocolate, mocha and licorice. The palate offers a plush, sweet wave of primary fruit, showing lovely lift and grip and impressive energy. Sweeter than the 2007 today if perhaps a ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2008 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Howell Mountain Cabernet. Distinctive, dark fruit flavors of blackberry and cassis are complemented by notes of floral and spice. The smaller berries from this vintage offer a rich core of both fruit and tannin, while hints of tar and earth add layers of interest. French oak blends beautifully with the ripe fruit and, combined with the abundantly fine tannins from this vintage, carries those flavors into a long, chewy finish.

Gil Nickel of Far Niente produces extraordinary single vineyard Napa Valley Cabs under his Nickel & Nickel label, each is a very low prodction wine from a unique sub-appellation in Napa Valley. Nickel's only Howell Mountain offering comes from the 15 acre Vogt Vineyard, planted in 1997. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 93 points and said "This densely structured wine is so dry and tannic the palate just puckers up into resistance. Buried deep down are massive and properly proportioned flavors of blackberries, black currants, dark unsweetened chocolate and smoky new oak. This intense 100% Cabernet should begin to blossom by 2012 and last for many years." Very Limited!

Wine Tasting NotesDark and bold with aromas of white blossom, spice and cedar. Firm and impressive, this wine opens with jammy flavors of boysenberry and cassis with a floral essence that is almost citrusy. Layers of clove, cedar and tobacco encompassed by big, yet rounded, tannins add weight and length to the finish.
