Vinous 96 points: “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Pauli Vineyard is impressive. Dark and potent in the glass, the 2018 captures all the character of Howell Mountain in its impressive presence. Black cherry, gravel, smoke, cedar, tobacco and licorice infuse the 2018 with so much character. Far from an easygoing 2018, the Pauli is going to need at least a few years to unwind.” –
WE 96 Points: “A 100% varietal wine that beautifully captures the stellar vintage and appellation, this wine opens in voluptuous berry aromatics, with seasonings of clove, nutmeg, sage, cedar and cigar box. Elongated tannins substantiate the length and breadth, firming its structure and complexity. Enjoy best from 2028–2033”
Winemaker Notes: “Dramatically dark and dense color clings to the glass with each swirl… intense and alluring aromas of black cherry and black currants waft from the glass. On the palate, expressive and expansive crushed rock, lively floral notes, cigar box, cedar, and savory spice wrap the powerful and dense fruit. Intertwined and structured, the rugged and youthful tannins showcase the power of vintage and the vineyard. This 100% single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon shows the power and future of the Pauli Howell Mountain Vineyard Estate with its robust tannins, intense fruit, unparalleled structure, and complexity.”
