2013 Howell at the Moon, Howell Mountain
(700 Cases Produced)
$79 per this offer only
Blackberry, blueberry, cassis, a more voluptuous Cab does not exist in Napa. Very big, chewy velvety tannins, big finish with rich blueberry, smoke and chocolate. Though Parker gives this wine high scores each vintage. He has not yet released scores on the 2013. Matthew, Michele and I all think it will receive at least 95 points, so we are going to put it in the 95 plus point tasting above as a secret bonus and have the guests submit a score.
All the best, Rex & Michele
FYI - The Estate Cabernet is absolutely beautiful. If you have ever bought any of the previous vintages, this is CLASSIC Howell at the Moon. So, elegant with the most velvety finish.
Also, we had appetizers after tasting the Howell at the Moons, not only is it priced great, the burger, bacon wrapped shrimp and ravioli were awesome (ravioli not on happy hour menu, but we had it at the last wine dinner and it is worth it!). A very nice and "cool" (temperature wise) happy hour starting at 4:30. Tell them we sent you!! FULL WRITEUP HERE
The proof is always in the glass!
