  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    (less than 200 cases made): Good full ruby. Distinctly rocky aromas and flavors of blueberry, minerals and smoke lifted by a minty topnote. Rich, serious and very deep; impressively chewy and tactile, with the rocky character carrying through in the mouth. Finishes youthfully tight, with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a restrained sweetness. This has been a superb bottling virtually since its first commercial release, the 2005.

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.
