In King of the Hill, the 2018 Mirror Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon makes no game of it. Draped in deep garnet, with strapping tannins on broad shoulders, and an elixir like cologne of crushed herbs and clove. Beautiful from the start it strides the tongue with a bevy of dried cherries and star anise, a slight sweetness on the entry with Balaton-like acidity and pleasant astringency building through the mid palate. The long linger evidences youth, brawny and bold. Only rest and deep time will tame this one. I believe cellared correctly, this wine will live out to 2039 or longer.
