Akatombo Howell Mountain Cabernet
Akatombo, Japanese for Red Dragonfly, is one of the finest examples of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. It is seductive, mineral-laced with a umami backbone that is integrated with fine-grained tannins and excellent mountain acidity. The palate is big, bold, and ripe up front, packed with aromatics and flavors of black currant, Bing cherry, wild sage, and luscious ripe plum. It’ll show hints of mountain forest, cedar and rich vanilla French oak flavors to create this rich full-bodied mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
