2013 Cufflinks Cabernet Sauvignon introduces you to deep, dark berry/cherry fruitiness with notes of black currant, licorice, roasted red pepper. The sweet fruit and the savory qualities associated with Howell Mountain play nicely together. Careful oak aging compliments rather than overtakes the wine. A healthy acidity, very Howell Mountain, brightens it. Indeed a “Howell Mountain Cabernet” that delivers big time flavor, texture and typicity for a fraction of the price of competitors. Master of Wine Review - I was not about to let 2018 pass without popping the sample you gave me of Cufflinks 2013 (finished bottle-image attached). Many thanks for this, our family shared it with close family friends, who happen to be vegetarian and I opened it (after the Feuillatte Palmes d’Or Rose 06 paired with arugula salad) and it worked lovely with a super-rich French Onion Soup- I know.. not the most obvious choice but it paired super well. The wine was awesome and a delight to drink – it went down quite fast and we were sad when we could begin seeing the punt through the glass. It certainly had a cool centrist-style to it – Broad-shouldered and expressive, unavoidable in that Napa terroir, but with a savory-sweet-earth balance to it, even a mannerism that harkened back to an old-world sensibility with plenty of class instead of overt, brutish power. Like Howell Mtn playing a piece from Rachmaninoff instead of Rage Against the Machine. I did notice the commencement of minor hints tertiary notes developing – but that contributed to the wine’s enjoyment, not detriment; adding to the length and complexity while the fruit softened and integrated with the structure. Quite seamless, Hunter. A treat. Thank you for sharing this wine with me, and glad I ran into you at Oxbow.
