Duckhorn Red Howell Mountain Napa Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Spectator: Deep, intense and well-structured, sharply focused on a tight-knit mix of gravelly earth, blackberry and wild berry notes, with touches of anise, licorice, dried herb and underbrush flavors, this ends with a burst of ripe fruit and dusty, fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 2,360 cases made. (11/15/16)

Duckhorn Vineyards:
Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent a quarter century establishing itself as one of North America's premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.
