SchraderでWA 100点を連発する等、すっかり注目の人になったThomas Brownのワインなので、掲載してみます。


2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon $65 [6] WA 94+
Tasting Notes from Thomas Brown
"It has always had a drinkability that we enjoy but slowly the seriousness of the wine has increased. It is a wine to contemplate now and a serious player in a set of wines framing a new Howell Mountain style. It has a juicy, overt fruitiness that isn’t expected of the appellation. This helps it to drink well young and to balance the savory elements of camphor, white pepper, pain grille and lilacs that creep in. The freshness makes it a pleasure to drink now while the stuffing reassures you it will only get better with age."

2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon - True Vineyard $95 [4]  WA 96
Tasting Notes from Thomas Brown
"What started out as a tough year in the vineyard has produced what we believe is the best wine we have ever made. The uniqueness that is always True Vineyard is amplified by this extraction level offering far more savory and fruit driven elements than years past. The savory takes the form of roasted meats and nuts, white flowers, wet rocks, menthol and charcoal balanced by blueberries, crushed blackberries, currants and cassis. When you drink wine often, sometimes a unique expression surprises you. Our True bottling is that times two in 2008."

2008 Howell Mountain Petite Sirah - The Other $50 [2] WA 92+
Tasting Notes from Thomas Brown
"This might be the smallest production wine we have ever made. This wine will require some patience-- on your offspring’s part. Punishingly big, it is an expression of pure black fruits. After a vigorous 48 hour decant, we could begin to tease out some more soil driven elements of smoke, creosote, gunpowder and wet river rocks. Buried deep beneath the tannic veneer, the fruit sweetness emerges in the form of crushed blackberries and mocha. We always compare this to young Bordeaux early in its life but there’s no mistaking this for anything but pure Petite Sirah."
