HALL "Howell Mountain"
FOR OUR INAUGURAL OFFERING of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon we are thrilled to partner with two of the most legendary growers in the appellation. The Howell Mountain AVA, the first declared sub-appellation of the Napa Valley, sits 1400’ above the town of Angwin in the northeast corner of Napa Valley. The vineyards we sourced from have deep red volcanic ash soils and they sit above the fog line. Their fruit is highly structured, very dense, and hugely concentrated.
Our “Howell Mountain” Cabernet Sauvignon is a massive, prodigious wine with extraordinary concentration and richness. Inky opaque purple, the wine possesses complex aromas of earth, spice, wild black fruits, grilled herbs, cinnamon, clove, and a touch of spearmint. The wine’s texture supplies huge personality and extraordinary richness as its aromas dance flamboyantly through the beautifully plush palate. Enthralling now, this wine will continue to evolve over the next 15-20 years.
