2013 Materra Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Reserve
The 2013 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon truly expresses the uniqueness of this appellation. Sitting high atop the Vaca Mountain range, our vineyards sit on soils composed of volcanic ash and dry, rocky red clay – which have a distinct presence in the aromas and flavor profile of this wine. Showcasing aromas of black cherry, stone minerals, and allspice, the nose of our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is something to behold. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, with dried plum, chalky tannins, and toasty vanilla leading to a silky-smooth finish. Pair with Beef Bordelaise over Creamy Polenta. Best from 2019-2033.
