98Jeb Dunnuck

...remarkable purity and elegance paired with serious oomph and density. Ripe blackberries, damp earth, and tobacco leaf notes flow to a full-bodied 2016 that has no hard edges, a great mid-palate, wonderful sweetness of fruit, and a rock star finish.

95The Wine Advocate

...bold blackberry preserves, baked plums and blueberry compote notions with hints of Chinese five spice, cedar chest, candied violets and chocolate box plus a waft of licorice. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it packs in the black and blue fruit layers with a firm yet wonderfully plush texture and tons of spicy sparks on the very long finish.

94Vinous / IWC

...fabulous. Sumptuous and beautifully layered...super-expressive... The blend of Cabernet aromatics and structure, along with Merlot fruit yields a wine of notable distinction and class...flavors are bright, precise and also wonderfully lifted.


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.
