Arns 2015 Cabernet Howell Mountain
2015 Arns Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Howell Mountain, Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 96 Points
Beautifully aromatic and impressively evolved, the aromas of this splendid Cabernet are a perfume of red currant galete, dark sour cherry, cedar, tobacco leaf, canela, sweet vanilla, toffee, baking spice and graphite. It is palate-coating and luxuriously elegant in the mouth, where cherry, red currant, cedar, sweet tobacco and baking spice flavors rise above undercurrents of laurel and graphite. The finish is plush and long and the wine begs for service with classic sauced meat entrees. It will undoubtedly yet improve and should easily hold its current charm and beauty for another eight to ten years. 300 cases made.
