GOLD MEDAL WINNER 90 points - 2013 Affairs of the Vine Cabernet Shootout
The 2009 Assassin retained the characteristics of the 2008 vintage, striking the perfect balance between the rich fruit and signature tannins of the Howell Mountain juice. Spicy red fruit on the nose with hints of eucalyptus and cedarwood. Blueberry, black cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla notes intertwine on the mid-palate. Hints of leather and tobacco are revealed in the long finish, enhanced by velvety tannins. Drink now through 2020.
