2012 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

93+ points - SOLD OUT !

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is even bigger than its 2013 sibling (15.4% alcohol), showing greater evolution and more forward aromatics and flavors than the 2013 version, this is juicy, succulent and opulent wine with a dense ruby/purple color, not the intense purity and concentration of the 2013, but really sexy, full-bodied, broad and flavorful. Loads of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit are present in this lush, heady style of wine that is irresistible and should continue to evolve gracefully for another 12 to 15+ years. These are impressive releases from Roberts + Rogers."

Description:

 The Howell Mountain Single Vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of carefully selected exceptional lots of the world famous hillside mountain fruit.

The most desirable & acclaimed AVA in Napa Valley for Cabernet Sauvignon, this vineyard combines volcanic soil with the high elevation mountain terrain above the fog line. The fruit is exposed to sunshine for longer days & warmer nights providing even ripening and full maturity.

This is a handcrafted big complex muscular Cabernet – opulent, bold, rich, and decadent, packed with intense, ripe jammy black fruit. Well integrated tannins from 24 months of 100% French Oak aging create a long flavorful finish.
