Antonio Galloni - 94 Points

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Sears Vineyard is every bit as special in bottle as it was from barrel. Graphite, lavender, mocha, smoke, blueberry jam, cassis and sage are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. Over the last year the tannins have begun to soften, but there is plenty of Howell Mountain energy and tension. The ripe, exotic finish is a thing of beauty, though."
