99Jeb Dunnuck

Awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, and flowers all soar from the glass and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth...this beauty stays more focused and composed, with elegance paired with restrained power.

97+ The Wine Advocate

...regal notes of fragrant earth, crushed rocks, cast iron pan and fungi over a core of blackberry pie, warm plums and cassis plus wafts of unsmoked cigars and new leather. The palate is full-bodied with firm yet ripe tannins and tons of earth and savory layers, finishing very long and provocative.

96Vinous / IWC

Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, rose petal, spice, and mint infuse this racy Cabernet...terrific freshness to play off the sumptuous fruit...super-concentrated in style...

94James Suckling

A firm and blackstrap red with lots of blueberry and blackberry character and hints of rosemary and dark chocolate at the same time. Full body, dusty tannins and a juicy finish.


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.


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
