This wine performed extremely well as soon as it was bottled never going through a period where it was shutdown. It showed its typical creamy texture almost immediately which usually takes a year or two to develop in bottle. Its brambly ripe fruit meshes seamlessly with the spice and white pepper which is the trademark of Howell Mountain. Beautifully dark in color the wine possesses balance throughout and finishes with silky fine grained tannins. This wine drinks remarkably well now but has the structure to last many years.
