United States

Howell Mountain Vineyards was acquired in 2005 by Rutherford Bench LLC, which is owned by the Chow Family. The Howell Mountain Vineyards brand was originally established in 1988 to handcraft limited releases of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beatty Ranch and Black Sears vineyards in Napa Valley’s renowned Howell Mountain region. From their elevations of over 1,800 feet, Howell Mountain grapes are known to produce exceptionally bold, full-bodied and rich wines. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Not only is Cabernet Sauvignon the most popular red wine, it’s also one that is best suited to gift giving. It’s a wine that everyone knows and understands.

  • Ladera Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Snoothrank:

    Open oer 24 hours and I got the last bit, so I believe oxygen robbed me of this experience. Nose of stewed red berry and currant. Tomato leaf and red berry compote aromas. Oxidation setting in. All red currant and stewed red fruit with some herbs. Read More

  • Last year I was lucky to have suffered from an excess of riches, but my travel schedule pushed reporting on many events to the bottom of my pile. I'm only now catching up with all of my notes, so while these notes are delayed, they certainly warrant publication. Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon is considered one of the blue chip Napa Valley ... Read More
