2017 Angwin Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain California USA
Winemaker Notes The 2017 Angwin Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon openswith roses, blood orange, dried fruit with hints of crushedherbs and exotic spice. The flavor profile is a complex blend of fresh and dried fruit with crushed herbs, cedar, leather, pipe tobacco, and minerality with well integrated tannin. The signature long, refined finish is on full display.
This wine pairs well with a wide variety of food with best choices being grilled meat, hearty pasta in red sauce, grilled vegetables like broccolini and asparagus, and beef stew. Cheese like Compté, Gruyere, Humbolt Fog, and aged Gouda are also great choices.
Press Juicy and lush, with bright plum, black cherry, and spice. Silky and ripe, tangy and exuberant; long and balanced, expressive and stylish. Rated 95 Points, Tasting Panel
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and deep, with tons of Howell Mountain character. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint, blood orange and rose petal all infuse the 2017 with lovely aromatic complexity and depth. This is a fairly approachable young Howell Mountain Cabernet that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Rated 92 Points Vinous
