“This 100% Cabernet shows the extensive tannins of its mountain terroir. But, as hard as they are, they’re refined enough to drink now. The flavors are wonderfully ripe in blackberries and cassis, with sweet caramel and butterscotch from new French oak. The wine will develop bottle complexity through at least 2018.” -S.H.

91+ points - Robert Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses the raspberry, rhubarb, crushed rock and floral characteristics I often associate with Howell Mountain. A touch of graphite is also present in this more masculine, fuller-bodied, rich, dense, beautifully textured Cabernet. It is another stunning effort from Pine Ridge, who seems to be doing their best work at present. The Howell Mountain cuvee should drink well young, but last for 20+ years.

Presents a trim, focused mix of spicy berry, loamy earth, dried herb and road tar, lending this version a rustic edge. Drink now through 2022. - James Laube

This ruggedly intense ruby-black wine exhibits a bold and potent bouquet that is redolent of ripe black plum, red cherry syrup and fresh cassis beneath a curtain of sweet pea, cracked white pepper and bay leaf. The palate is abundant and rounded, swelling with the rich flavors of briary blackberry and luscious raspberry, enhanced by structured tannins and touches of rich toffee, vanilla bean, cinnamon stick and subtle spearmint that carry through the lingering finish.
