Vinous 92 points - A vivid, chiseled wine, the 2013 Howell Mountain Hillside Blend is absolutely brilliant and full of potential. Once again, the interplay of Howell Mountain intensity and ripeness is nicely tempered by the heavy presence of Merlot. The balance of aromatics, fruit, acidity and structure is inspired. My guess is that the Howell Mountain Hillside Blend will soon become the flagship wine at Moone-Tsai. It is without question the most distinctive wine in the range.
92-95 Points (Dec 2014)
