RATINGS

99James Suckling

The purity of fruit is so inspirational here with blackcurrants, licorice, tar and violets. Full-bodied, layered and extremely long. Juicy and so intense.

97Jeb Dunnuck

...spring flowers, graphite, and crushed rocks, with just a hint of toasty oak in the background. Ethereally textured, powerful yet fresh, concentrated yet graceful, it's a killer wine that does everything right.

96Vinous / IWC

Super-ripe black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, lavender, juniper berry, mint and licorice abound.

95The Wine Advocate

...opens with tons of wild blueberry, mulberries and cassis notes over garrigue, sage, baking spices and dusty soil plus touches of Black Forest cake and cedar.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain

Howell Mountain AVA in Northeastern Napa Valley was the first of Napa Valley’s sub-appellations, earning its own designation in 1984, just a year after Napa Valley became an appellation. As the name suggests, the AVA is in one of the highest elevations in the area. Every vineyard in the appellation is at least 1,400 feet above sea level. Some vineyards are as high as 2,200 feet and because of their altitude most of the AVA’s vineyards receive more sun than vineyards at lower elevations, which are affected by fog from the Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay. Howell Mountain was home to vineyards in the late 19th century, but winemaker Randy Dunn is considered the area’s most influential modern pioneer. Dunn moved to Howell Mountain in 1979, acquired property and began making exceptionally rich Cabernet Sauvignon. The AVA also grows Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. There are 600 vineyard acres within Howell Mountain AVA.
