The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch is the most potent and savory of the Howell Mountain Cabernets. Iron, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and chocolate all run through the 2018. Huge, massive tannins need time to soften, but the 2018 is always going to be a powerhouse. The fruit profile here is on the riper side, but all the elements mesh together effortlessly
