Localization: Howell Mountain, Napa Valley, California, USA

Tasting Notes: A higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon has found its way into this wine that is dark, deep, nuanced, and supple. Sourced from young vines on our Candlestick Ridge Vineyard, displays immediate Howell Mountain power in the glass with lavender, thorny fruits, and minerals at the fore. 

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: A blend of two vineyard sites, the Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is an assemblage of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot. Matured 18 months in French oak, it's cedary, but those shadings are balanced by attractive sage nuances set against a backdrop of ripe blueberries and cherries. Full-bodied, rich, velvety, and long, it's the real deal. Best After 2024.
