  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Saturated medium ruby. Knockout nose melds cassis, truffle, eucalyptus, minerals and an exhilarating hint of white flowers; liqueur-like but not from overripeness. Supple, rich and seamless, with terrific underlying minerality leavening the wine's sweetness and giving it a rather classic mien. The very long finish features suave tannins that coat the teeth without showing any youthful roughness. A superb vintage for this wine, which has been consistently outstanding in recent years.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard is a much more opulent wine that in many ways is less typical of Howell Mountain. It is an especially seamless Cabernet Sauvignon loaded with dark fruit, flowers and mint, all of which are supported by insistent veins of minerality. All of the flavors build effortlessly to the muscular, inviting finish.

  • 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.
