Jeb Dunnuck Review
Rated 93+
A new wine (it's the first time I've tasted it, anyway) the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon The Stick checks in as a mix of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, all from the Candlestick Ridge Vineyard on Howell Mountain. It's similar to the Howell Mountain cuvée and has brilliant purity and elegance as well as textbook blue fruits, sappy herbs, pine forest, graphite, and violet-tinged aromas and flavors. Pure, balanced, and full-bodied on the palate, it's a head-turner and one rock-solid 2017. Drink 2020-2040.

Wine Tasting Notes
Robert Craig The Stick Howell Mountain Napa Red Blend is dense, powerful and beautifully concentrated. The nose is perfumed with luxuriant aromas of black currant, boysenberry, cedar box and Herbes de Provence. The intensely layered palate excites with cassis, plum, and graphite. Rich and seductive with a velvety texture finishing long and perfumed.

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (10%)
