Howell Mountain fruit is responsible for some of the most iconic wines of Napa Valley.
Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is incredibly intense and impactful on the nose, revealing notes of crushed black cherries, blackberries and fresh black currants with underlying notions of charcoal, sautéed herbs, black soil, chargrilled meat and pencil lead, plus a waft of violets. Very full-bodied, very rich mid pallet concentrated, the wall of fruit is well matched by a firm structure of ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with great length and depth.
This small production red (400 cases) is structured and elegant in form, flavor and balance. Texturally rich and concentrated – it’s a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with stage presence. Aromas go earthy with black olive, leather and graphite. Dark cherry and grilled meat keep it opulent and a juiciness persists all the way to the finish.
