Our second vintage of our Napa Valley Cabernet brings together wines from both our Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder Estates. This wine is dark with a rich purple hue. Aromatics of blueberry and black raspberry evolve into warm spices and subtle black tea. slight scent of cigar box and beautiful oak tones. The flavors are rich, pure and powerful. Seamless tannins with lush, long lasting fruit make this wine enjoyable now or over the ages.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa is actually 72% from Mt. Veeder and 28% from Howell Mountain, and is an interesting blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 11% Malbec. This wine has a thick-looking bluish/purple color and notes of charcoal, graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit with some cassis emerging. It is medium to full-bodied and exhibits impressive purity, texture and length. For a 2013, it is already drinking well, but it is capable of evolving for 15-20 years.
