Swirl. Sniff. Taste. Repeat.
In his previous adventure, Dial M for Merlot, Justin James attended his very first wine tasting and discovered he possesses the kind of advanced palate prowess seasoned sommeliers work years to develop.
Now, in Cabernet Confessional, with his sublime talent in tow, Justin’s path leads him to Sonoma Valley in northern California where his life takes a new and totally unforeseen direction.
Join him as he travels down a bumpy, wine country road where the ghosts from his past, his hopes for the future and his increasingly turbulent present collide in a fiery explosion of murder, mistaken identity and red wine. Lots of red wine.
Look out—sip happens!

About the Author:
First-time author and full-time wine enthusiast Howard K is a composer and producer of music for television, film and advertising.
In late 2007, he hit the big Trifecta, and his life was forever changed. Unfortunately, the payout wasn’t in cash or prizes. Instead, his winnings included surgery, chemo therapy and months of radiation treatments, all of which resulted in a new and growing appreciation for and perspective on life in general.
With the help, love and support of his family and close friends, Howard survived his bout with adversity and currently remains cancer-free. However, one of the main side-effects of his successful treatment was the total loss of his sense of taste, and his elation and relief at regaining his health was, for many years during his recovery,tempered by his inability to enjoy the simple, gratifying flavors in a cup of coffee, a bite of bread and cheese, or a glass of wine.
In late 2010, the situation finally began to improve, and over the following months and years, he found himself once again attending tastings, dinners and other social events where the enjoyment of fine wines was an integral part of the festivities.
A friend suggested he chronicle his experiences and share them with the world, and in 2012, the novice writer began to do just that. While attempting to condense his thoughts and impressions into a coherent, truthful recounting of his small ordeal,he instead veered way off-course and produced a quirky, humorous work of fiction about the power of positive thinking,positive drinking,and the ability to simply say “yes” and embrace the unknown and unfamiliar.
