Abreu Howell Mountain 2010

2010 ABREU Howell Mountain, 750ml: This powerful and well-structured red blend from Howell Mountain boasts a stunning depth of flavor, featuring notes of blackcurrant, violet, and graphite. This wine pairs well with grilled steaks or a hearty wild mushroom ragout.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -

An absolute blockbuster, the 2010 Howell Mountain includes Malbec and Petit Verdot blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous perfume of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and wet rocks. This ripe, smoky, intense, full-bodied wine reveals a boatload of tannins, but also richer fruit and a deeper, multidimensional mouthfeel and finish than the 2009, which appears to be more broodingly backward and structured. This appears to be a great success. Consume it over the next 25-30 years.
