2014 Abreu "Las Posadas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $360)

SKU #1454169 99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The purity of fruit is so inspirational here with blackcurrants, licorice, tar and violets. Full-bodied, layered and extremely long. Juicy and so intense. Quality of tannins is beautiful with a chewy and savory finish. Fantastic. Inner quote mark (5/2017)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From the estate's Howell Mountain site, the 2014 Las Posadas offers a sensational bouquet of sweet crème de cassis (and lots of blue fruit characteristics, which is classic Howell Mountain), spring flowers, graphite, and crushed rocks, with just a hint of toasty oak in the background. Ethereally textured, powerful yet fresh, concentrated yet graceful, it's a killer wine that does everything right. It lacks the opulence and decadence of the other single vineyards, yet shines for its purity, focus, and precision. Along with the Cappella, it's the more approachable of the single vineyard releases. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is loaded with potent blueberry, açaí berry and fig compote flavors that are dense but remarkably polished and suave in profile. Instead of teetering on the edge of overripe, this potent version stands authoritatively upright and even-keeled thanks to an I-beam of graphite that goes right through the middle from start to finish. Threads of loam, alder and ganache add detail throughout. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Las Posadas shows the strides this Howell Mountain site continues to make. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, lavender, juniper berry, mint and licorice abound. The pungent aromas and piercing tannins scream of Howell Mountain. Vivid and intense, the 2014 has so much to offer. Even better, the 2014 is surprisingly accessible for a young Howell Mountain Cabernet-based wine. It should drink with minimal cellaring. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Notes of dark spice, cassis, potpourri and brooding black fruit are followed by a powerful, full-bodied and authoritative palate with an imposing chassis of fine but firm tannins. From Howell Mountain, featuring notable proportions of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. (WK) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Las Posadas Proprietary Red opens with tons of wild blueberry, mulberries and cassis notes over garrigue, sage, baking spices and dusty soil plus touches of Black Forest cake and cedar. The rich, full-bodied palate is rugged, muscular, lively and concentrated with firm, grainy tannins, finishing very long and earthy. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)
