About This Item

This estate wine is single-vineyard fruit grown at 2,000 foot elevation on our property near the summit of Howell Mountain – mostly Clone 7 and Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in the 1990s and some planted in the 2010s.

The late ripening and longer hang-time of Mountain fruit – along with patience – produces fully ripe wines with balanced acidity, soft tannins and a rich mid-palate that are associated with thoroughly ripe black-cherry Cabernet. This wine is very big, but the lively acidity makes your mouth water, balances the mouth-feel, and calls for a steak! This wine is well-suited to bottle age gracefully for many years to come.

Vineyard Manager Hector Lopez’s exceptional skills consistently produce the best fruit I have ever worked with. Though production of our Howell Mountain Cabernet is limited, it is well worth the effort. This is my favorite wine, bar none.
