Ladera Howell Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

SKU 5952

The 2013 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is poised to age beautifully. It delivers a style similar to the 2012 vintage, but enhances a more rich and intense fruit character. Deep, fragrant aromas explode from the glass exhibiting notes of blackberry and blueberry extract highlighted by cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Powerful yet elegant, the flavorful palate displays ripe flavors of plum, blackberry and black cherry supported by structured tannins and refreshing acidity.
