Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Another stunning wine from Howell Mountain, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Eagle Summit is spectacular. Mulberry, truffle, graphite and a touch of high-quality new oak is followed by a full-bodied, stunningly proportioned wine made by hot-shot guru Thomas Rivers Brown. This is a beauty of symmetry, intensity and remarkable fruit quality. Drink it over the next 20 years. "

Product Description:

"The Eagle Summit Vineyard, owned by the Doty family, was the first vineyard that Josh replanted upon his return to the Napa Valley. It was replanted in 2000 to Cabernet Sauvignon with two different rootstock and clonal selections. The soil is composed of well drained Aiken loam and is comprised of a mix of rich red soil and classic Howell Mountain rocks. There is the use of a permanent cover crop to help dry down spring soils and promote smaller, concentrated fruit. The vineyard is situated at an elevation of 2100 feet and is slightly rolling. Eagle Summit is one of those vineyards that, year after year, performs consistently and offers up the highest quality of fruit with very little manipulation." - Winery
