There’s a delightful note of herbs and green olives to this Bordeaux-style Cabernet, although it also shows plenty of red cherries and black raspberries. With smooth, refined tannins, it’s just superb for drinking now, although it should age well in a cool cellar.
Negociant Cameron Hughes got his hands on some seriously good Cabernet to come out with this beauty. It’s soft enough to drink right away, with luxurious tannins framing ripe, sweet flavors of blackberries, cherries and licorice. Sweet oak gives a rich layer of toast. Drink now.
Ripe and jammy, this Cab comes from a vineyard east of St. Helena on the lower slopes of Howell Mountain. The wine is extremely ripe and jammy, with pronounced blackberry, cherry, black raspberry and currant flavors. A little aggressive in fruity sharpness now, it should calm down over the next several years.
