Tried this at the tasting room in Napa Valley in August 2009. It was the best value for a Howell Mountain Cabernet I have found anywhere. Has all of the concentrated mountain grown flavor you would expect from a Howell Mtn. Cab. Well balanced, loads of black fruit flavors, no handicaps. At $75 a bottle, it's a steal for a wine from this area.

Intensives Granat-Rubin. Brombeergelee und schwarze Kirschen in der süss-fruchtigen Nase, auch Zwetschgen und Kaffee dahinter. Fruchtbetonter Gaumen mit eleganter Textur und schmeichelhafter Extraktsüsse, runde Tannine und wieder viel Brombeeren und Kirschen, faszinierende Napa-Würze und Früchtebrot bis ins sanft nachklingende Finale.


Winemaker's Notes:

Small hillside vineyards from Pritchard Hill, Rutherford and Calistoga produced excellent small berries but very low yields and as a result our 2006 Napa Cabernet production is lower than any prior vintage. The flagship of our Fall release wines fires on all cylinders and delivers a winning balance of handling and performance. Complex aromas of toffee, mocha and ripe black plums are threaded with cedary oak spice and a hint of sweet tobacco. Brooding black fruits are concentrated, forming a serious yet sumptuous core palate framed with soft, velvety tannins that deliver a long chocolaty finish. 1,100 cases produced.
