This wine smells big, it smells like I imagine wet cement feels. A saturated black hue with a very narrow band of garnet at the edges, the 2005 might be our most complete "Other" to date. The nose is very savory and full of wet river rock, dense blackberries, sweetgrass, iodine and molasses. On the palate and aided by a bigger than normal berry year, the sweet fruit continues unabated with blueberries, black raspberries, slate and mocha. The requisite wall of tannin creeps in at the end framed by solid acidity and the slightest hint of toasty oak.-Thomas Brown, Winemaker

About This Producer


Howell Mountain provides a true "outpost" for these wines, with rocky soil, cool breeze, and a stunning view. At an altitude of 2,100 feet above the Napa Valley floor, owners Terry and Juli Pringle grow Zinfandel, Cabernet, Petit Sirah, and Grenache, all organically. The debut vintage was the 1998 100% Znfandel, which garnered a 93-point score from The Wine Spectator. Thomas Brown is the full time winemaker, and Ehren Jordan, winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars, consults. A second project, True Vineyard, debuts in 2008 with a Bordeaux blend estate wine.
