Tasting Notes:

Aroma: Luscious blackberry and boysenberry, with touches of white pepper, lavender, anise and espresso bean.

Finish: Complex flavors extend all the way through mid-palate, ending in a full-throttle finish.
General: This smooth, polished wine possesses the weight and structure befitting a mountain Cabernet. Fine, silky tannins provide the scaffolding for long-term aging. Decanting is recommended.

Vineyard Notes:

Howell Mountain’s rugged terrain produces among Napa Valley’s most acclaimed and sought-after Cabernets. Our estate vineyard and winery are located at the highest elevation, along a ridgeline overlooking the Valley at nearly 2300 feet. The red and brown volcanic soils are thin, rocky, and well-drained, causing the vines to struggle for water and nutrients and creating small berries with intense flavor.

Production Notes:

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc. Unfiltered and unfined.

Production:

1240 cases
