2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain
Cornerstone Cellars has been making Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain since our inaugural vintage in 1991. The 2018 vintage produced a wine with classic Howell Mountain characteristics. Deep in color with dark garnet-purple hues and expressive aromatics of black currents and a hint of dried herbs. The entry is full and ripe, with youthful vibrance and lush texture. On the palate this full-bodied wine offers black ripe fruit flavors intermingled with the nuanced earthiness that defines mountain fruit. Complex and thought-provoking this beauty is ready now but would benefit with a little time in the cellar.
