Product Description

The 2009 Notre Vin Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, made by the late Denis Malbec and his wife May-Britt, is a classic Howell Mountain wine with attractive aromas of blackberries, black cherries, walnuts, rocky minerality, and pencil. The silky tannins are ripe, lush and well coated with a solid knit. It is an elegant yet dense wine with a velvety texture, great focus and length.

Varietal Composition: 96 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 Merlot, 1.5 Cabernet Franc, 0.5 Petit Verdot
Appellation: Howell Mountain AVA
Aging: 22 months in 100 percent new French oak barrels
Production: 225 cases

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"Layers of fruit caress the palate as the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon opens up in the glass. This is a vintage that stands out for its textural depth and volume. Absolutely nothing is out of place. The 2009 is a broad, rich wine endowed with tons of depth and pure resonance. One of the most finessed wines I tasted from Notre Vin, the 2009 comes across as a slightly smaller scaled version of the 2007. Layers of fruit caress the palate on the enveloping finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." -AG, 12/26/12

92 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"With firm acidity and big tannins, this Cabernet is nowhere ready to drink. It shows an almost old-time Howell Mountain aggressiveness. It's also relatively low in alcohol, the kind of wine that Napa doesn't produce much of anymore. All signs, including an intense concentration of blackberries and stone fruits, are that it's an ager. Cellar until 2017." 6/1/12
