  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Good ruby-red. Sexy, musky aromas of currant, mocha and leather. Then suave and fine-grained in the mouth, with lovely energy and finesse to the red berry and spice flavors. The firm, persistent finish features big but ripe and harmonious tannins.

    Ruggedly tannic, yet showing generous ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's intense and persistent. Keeps its focus.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very typical wine from this appellation. Spices, grilled herbs and new leather add considerable complexity to the dark fruit. I especially admire the finesse and fabulous overall sense of harmony here. This is a highly representative Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.
