Beautiful aromatics of camphor, new leather, dried herbs, and both red and black fruits give way to a full-bodied Cabernet with integrated oak, perfect balance, and silky tannins. Bravo!

Lots of juicy fruit in an old-school style. It’s full-bodied, dense and layered with lots of fruit and intensity. Ripe fruit with some pine-needle and conifer undertones.

Dusty sage, earth and dried herb meet a layer of cocoa powder and coffee bean in this intensely concentrated, big-boned wine. Soft, rich and round, it delivers resolved tannin and lasting grip amidst an array of dark brooding cherry and blackberry.

With 10% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot, this mountain wine is tannic and structured, with brawny, leathery black and blue fruit. Softened on the midpalate, it builds additional intensity toward the finish, ending in a note of clove, black pepper and toasted oak

Stephanie Jacobs, who was promoted to winemaker in 2017, found a way to charm the fierce Howell Mountain tannins of this wine into a luscious texture that's completely enveloping. Along with the dark-plum flavors, there's a superripe note of yellow apricot and an earthy gingerroot spice to the acidity. Remarkably accessible for a Howell Mountain cabernet.
