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

  • Wasn't so long ago we were talking about her. Just saw an article pop up on W-SZelma LongOh yeah, and Dave - re: the Brett topic from earlier this year. There are strong suspicions that Leoville Barton wines still contain it, all the way up to vintage 2010. If the 2003 had any, they were pretty minor and didn't stick out much. Read More
