The inaugural release of our Family Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon unfolds with dark cherry aromas on a background of toasted oak. Cherry flavors endure in the mouthfeel of the wine along with cream, vanilla and a slight minerality. A final reward is the velvety tannins accompanied by a long, luscious finish.

"A leaner style of Cabernet, this tastes of chocolate and coffee, chewy and dusty with a streak of black pepper. It's one of the winery's upper-tier offerings, hailing from Howell Mountain fruit rather than Napa's valley floor."
