CONSECRATION WINES

Deep, dark berry/cherry fruitiness, black currant, licorice, roast red pepper and a “taste of the soil” that I geekily describe as crushed river rocks introduce you to the cufflinks. The sweet fruit and the savory qualities associated with Howell Mountain play nice together. Careful oak ageing complements rather than overtakes the wine. A healthy acidity, very Howell Mountain, brightens it. Indeed a “Howell Mountain Cab” that delivers big time flavor, texture and typicity for less dough than most.

Cufflinks Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Consecration Wines, a negociant focusing on small-production, excellent value California wines. To see all my reviews of Consecration Wines, GO HERE.
