Tasting Notes

Our 2012 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, the granddaddy of the portfoilo, beautifully reects the amazing bounty and quality of the vintage. Dark and rich, this Cabernet Sauvignon reveals an outstanding bouquet of ripe blackberries, plums, crème de cassis, cherry cola, sweet tobacco, and dried herbs. Full bodied and luxuriously textured, this wine is wonderfully smooth and plush on the palate but powerful all at once. The wine nishes long and velvety, with vibrant dark fruits leaving a lasting impression. It’s hard to keep away from now, as this wine is already showing very well, but those who wait will be rewarded tenfold.

Vintage Notes

The 2012 vintage in Napa will go down as one of the best vintages in recent history. With near-ideal spring bud break and steady powering producing an even fruit set, the 2012 vintage provided a near record crop with high quality fruit. A lengthy stretch of warm days and cool nights during the long summer months produced fruit with a nice balanced structure and acidity. This growing season lead to beautifully complex ripe fruit, and is clearly exhibited in our wines from 2012.
