2013 Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 1.5L

2013 Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 1.5L


The aromas and bouquet of the 2nd release of our Howell Mountain Cabernet are a complex and rich blend of blackberry jam, fresh blueberries, and dry rose petals with traces of nutmeg, cinnamon and cedar.  The palate follows with a concentrated core of dark berries, baking spices, cocoa with hints of dry grass and California Bay Laurel.  The balanced acid, fruit, and well structured tannins deliver a seamless, evolving sensory experience that will leave a clean and lasting finish on the palate.
