Our 2007 vintage from neighboring Black Sears Vineyard demonstrates why Howell Mountain Zinfandels are in such demand. This is a serious Zinfandel-lovers wine, possessing great depth of flavors, balance and structure. Concentrated, long-lived essence of black raspberry and signature Howell Mountain pepper are at the forefront, backed by fine tannins.
Aroma: Howell Mountain's wild reaches come through in concentrated black raspberry fruit, mountain lilac, ground white/black pepper, and a touch of anisette and rose petals.
Flavors: Gorgeous wild berry fruit flows from the opening aromatics, finding great depth in the mid-palate and enlivened by pepper, warm spices and a volcanic minerality.
Finish: Supple tannins and luscious fruit come together in a strong, lingering finish.
"This grows at the Black Sears Vineyards, just over the ridge from Robert Craig's winery in Angwin, where the winemaking team handles this moutain zin with restraint, treating it more like pinot noir than cabernet. The care shows in the wine's arc of power and grace, a heady expansion of fruit, meaty game and foresty mushroom character that trails off but does not disappear from memory. Its deep, layered complexity and beautiful floral character last, darkening like roses as they dry and fade to black. Decant a bottle for tea-smoked duck."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley

(Croatia has been named its origin),
it does seem quite at home in the vineyards of California.
