Our Estate Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon dazzles with its opulent, brambly blue and blackberry layers, balanced by dark chocolate and an incredibly welcoming personality. This gorgeous wine is unusually open, resonant and richly layered. Hints of smoke, tar, licorice and minerality add complexity to the intense dark fruit. "This is a wine I want to drink, not merely taste", says winemaker Danielle Cyrot. All the elements come together in an effortless, inviting wine loaded with layers of intrigue.

Wine AdvocateThe stunning, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts beautiful mulberry, blueberry and black raspberry fruit notes, a pure, full-bodied style, sweet tannin, adequate acidity and an opulent, lush mouthfeel. This offering is atypical for a Howell Mountain cuvée, which tends to be more foreboding in its youthfulness. Drink this beauty over the next 15+ years.
