From grapes in well-drained soils of volcanic ash and clay, this wine combines notes of cassis, dried blackberries, mocha and tobacco leaf with firmly-structured tannins and a broad, mouth-filling texture. 

Wine Profile
Ratings
92 Points, James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants, chocolate and baking spices. Very juicy with young, slightly-pungent tannins. Medium-to full-bodied with a fresh finish. Well balanced and focused. Drink now." 91 Points, Jeb Dunneck: "Coming from Howell Mountain, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon JRV Collector's Series Howell Mountain has a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, focused, mountain black fruit style as well as lots of graphite, scorched earth, violets, and leafy herb-like aromas and flavors. It picks up a tinge of chocolate with time in the glass, has good overall balance, fine tannins, and outstanding length. It's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and I suspect it will keep for 15-20 years or more."
