Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($45) Good full ruby. Briary dark raspberry, plum syrup, mocha, dried sage and white pepper on the aromatic nose. Big and lush yet fairly suave for zinfandel, with briary dark fruit and spice flavors and a fleshy, pliant texture. This one benefits from an excellent acid/tannin backbone.

Dense and powerful, yet wonderfully rich, supple and well-structured at the core. Offers aromas of blackberry, fresh loamy earth and smoky toast, with ripe yet focused wild berry, mocha-espresso and white pepper flavors.

This one is really tasting great right now. Not overwhelming spice but good volume and berry flavors.

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.
