2015 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Our 2015 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in the early morning of late October, hand-picked and sorted, mechanically destemmed, and cold soaked prior to fermentation for 6 days to extract maximum flavor, aromatic, and color components
We harvested only 1.4 tons per acre. The wine was aged in caves in 50% new French oak barrels and 50% neutral French oak barrels for 24 months. This is a big, full bodied wine with layers of aromatics and depth on the palate. Howell Mountain has become synonymous with high end Cabernet Sauvignon -- compared to many far more expensive wines from Howell Mountain, this wine equally delivers on all levels. Only 225 cases produced.
