Robert Craig Howell Mountain Cuvée Red 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
The 2018 Howell Mountain Cuvée comes all from a mountainous terroir in the northern part of the valley and is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and the balance Malbec. Lots of plum, lavender, charcoal, and graphite notes define the nose, and it's medium-bodied, with a savory, slightly chewy texture and solid length on the finish. It's an enjoyable, chunky red to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
