2018 The David Howell Mountain
Howell Mountain, Napa Valley
NEW RELEASE - AVAILABLE TO SHIP NOW
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc from our Howell Mountain Vineyard
The David blend from Howell Mountain is distinctly different than the David Rutherford. While we took the same varietal and clonal selections from the Rutherford Estate, when they are grown at the top of Howell Mountain, we produce a wine with significantly more structure. This is truly a mountain wine with its concentration, structure, and complexity. Here we get all the individual expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, the expression is decidedly different. This eight-barrel blend is a blend of the best new oak from France. Should age well for 15-20 years.
