Robert Parker gives this wine 94 Points and says: ¬†“…the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, …is performing better now than it did last year. A dense purple color in addition to plenty of creme de cassis, crushed rock, blueberry, and brioche-like notes are found in this full-bodied Cabernet. It avoids the rustic tannins of this vintage, and exhibits good sweetness and purity of fruit. Consume it over the next 15-20 years. ”
