Not all of the Howell Mountain wines are super tannic, and need 10 years in the cellar to drink well. The 2009 Moffett is a stunning, well-crafted, gorgeous, nicely balanced mountain-grown youngster. Beautiful deep dark color and rich, black stone fruit aromas jump out of the glass. This 2009 is dense, rich, powerful and extracted with stunning layers of black currant, black cherry and blackberry fruits with a touch of chocolate, espresso and a whiff of toasty vanilla. Full in bodied, but well balanced, with a stunning finish that offers up touches of raspberry mixed into the deep core of fruit that allows for an impressive long juicy finish with a silky lining.
