Red Cap 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain)

Cellar Selection

With a Cabernet this dynamic in black currants, chocolate, oak and tannins, the question always is, will it age? It's not particularly drinkable now, although many people will pop the cork, and all signs point to the cellar. There's firm minerality, the midpalate is incredibly deep and complex, and the finish is dry and long. Give it until 2018 to begin to come around.
