This offering is a blend of Zinfandel paired with Cabernet Sauvignon that originates exclusively from the Howell Mountain appellation. The region’s 1,800-foot elevation, unique climate and volcanic soils are the key to producing bold, intense wines.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Appellation: Howell Mountain, Napa Valley
Production Notes
Composition: 65% Zinfandel, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon Aging & Oak: 16 months in oak, 100% French oak, 60% new
Winemaker Notes
Spotlights great brambly mountain-fruit aromas, underscored by elements of white pepper, tobacco leaf, clove and sage. Barrel aging contributes subtle notes of vanilla and cedar. This wine is big and broad with just a hint of sweetness that pulls the palate to a long, sophisticated finish of pepper, cedar, dried herbs and earth
Production
Due to a wet spring and long, mild growing season, the harvest began two weeks later than normal. A strong heat wave and late rains required us to be extra diligent during harvest, with a focus on fine-tuning and timely picking. As is often the case in milder years, our 2010 wines are marked by their elegance and balanced natural acidity—qualities we have worked to preserve in the winery
