Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Deep ruby-red. Sexy, exotic perfume of raspberry, blueberry, mocha and woodsmoke. Densely packed flavors of dark berries, flowers and minerals are nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Really wonderfully fat for 2011 cabernet, finishing with serious broad, ripe tannins and outstanding persistence. I don't think I would have identified the vintage here, as this is a real outperformer. And the crop size was good too, as this high-altitude vineyard flowered after the early June rains.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
