2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mtn
The year 2010 introduced our first Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon made in a small quantity exclusively for our wine club members. While the entire Napa Valley is known for its award winning Cabernets, hillside appellations within the Valley like Howell Mountain are credited with producing the most exceptional wines – big, bold Napa Valley Cabernets with robust balance and finesse. With less than 1,000 total acres planted, wines from this region are in high demand. Concentrated flavors of blackberry and black cherry are supported by earthy undertones and oak-inspired notes of toasty cinnamon and spice. This Cabernet is defined by powerful but well integrated tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Enjoy today after decanting or cellar until 2022. This big, hearty Cab pairs perfectly with flavorful savory fare including dry aged cheeses, grilled Midwest beef and roasted seasonal vegetables.
