"Home sweet home. This is from our home property and if you have visited, you’ll have seen the signs of the five children. Each year they get more involved in the grape growing and crushing practices, just down the hill from the house at the winery, where all our fruit is crushed.
Like some of our other mountain properties, we manage the powerful and potentially brutal tannins into a rounder, more approachable 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is full of toasty oak, spice, cherry fruit and cassis aromas consistent with our Cabernet Sauvignon.
190 cases produced. Located 1,800 feet above sea level, this mountain property is the home for our family and the winery. The vineyard has been farmed organically since 1998, is certified by CCOF, and is currently enrolled in the Fish Friendly Farming environmental certification program.
The wine's fragrance expresses cherry fruit, dark chocolate, sandalwood spice and creamy oak. In the mouth there are multiple layers of black fruit, raspberries and spice. Howell Mountain has long been recognized as one of the best winegrowing regions in the world and our site yields intense but balanced character. A big wine with firm tannin, powerful fruit and a long lingering finish." -Winery
