Wine Enthusiast 95 pts Cellar Selection
The aromas and bouquet of the 5th release of our Howell Mountain Cabernet are a complex and rich blend of blackberry jam, fresh blueberries, dry rose petals complimented with glimmers of nutmeg, cinnamon and cedar. The palate follows with a concentrated core of dark berries, baking spices, and dark chocolate with hints of dry grass and California Bay Laurel. The balanced acid, fruit, and beautifully ripe mountain tannins deliver a powerful yet elegant, evolving sensory experience that will leave a clean and lasting finish on the palate.
From the Cimarossa Vineyard on Howell Mountain, Napa Valley.
