CHARLES KRUG HOWELL MTN CABERNET 2012


The second vintage of the Howell Mountain Cabernet gave the winery mature fruit with signature black cherry and cranberry aromas that the AVA is known for. Cherry flavors endure in the mouthfeel of the wine with a slight minerality and mingle with firm tannins, toasted oak and cranberry. This is a true combination of everything you would expect in such an elegant wine.

Aromas of sweet tobacco, black currant and hints of asphalt or lead pencil. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Polished tannins here. Drink or hold.

he 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. Notes of graphite, charcoal and earth set it apart from the 2012 Generations. It also offers notes of mocha, blackcurrants and black cherries in its rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced personality. It is another impressive effort from Charles Krug to enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
