2016 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2016

Varietal: Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Appellaton: Howell Mountain

Vineyard Designation: Heitz Ink Grade

Harvest Date: September 27, 2016

Vineyard Notes

The Heitz family has owned a beautiful vineyard located off of Ink Grade in the Howell Mountain AVA. This area is known for small berries, low yields and a shorter growing season. We welcomed the opportunity to work with this well-known vineyard and to create a wine from this classic mountain AVA.

Tasting Notes

Wonderful aromas of gun smoke, graphite, and minerals play alongside mulberry fruit, blackberry and a hint of mint. The great mountain structure has more red berry notes with the same thread of minerality that blends into a well-balanced oak profile. The palate is generous and powerful but not overwhelming.
