    ($85; blended with 5% cabernet franc) Deep, saturated ruby. Highly aromatic nose combines red fruits, lilac and crushed rocks. Juicy and bright in the mouth, with a distinctly rocky minerality and bright acidity giving terrific lift and verve to the flavors of red fruits, flowers and spices. The tannins are serious but arrive late. A strongly mineral-driven, highly aromatic wine, the first commercial release under this label.

    Bottle seemed a little funky and with a touch of barnyard muddling flavors.

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.
