    Winemaker's Notes:

    Crafted around a core of robust, mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, this Napa Valley wine embodies the power and intensity of its rugged, high-elevation terroir. The blend focuses on fruit from our two Howell Mountain Estate vineyards-Stout and Candlestick Ridge-yielding a wine with exceptional structure and extracted aromatics of peppermint, chocolate, bramble, cedar, soy and ginger spice. On the palate, it is lush and mouth-filling, highlighting Howell Mountain's signature wild berry and currant flavors, alongside notes of toasted marshmallow, espresso, earth, sage and sandalwood.

    Varietal Content: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another fine member of the Duckhorn portfolio, this sturdy, deeply flavored blend of classic Bordelaise reds takes its direction from Cabernet first and foremost. Big and brooding with a certain mountain brashness about it, it is a weighty, full-bodied working of great substance and strength. More sinewy than most of its siblings, it comes with a full measure of gruff tannins, but juicy, well-ripened fruit trumps astringency at every turn, and there is no question but that it has the right stuff to age brilliantly for a decade or more.
