Winemaker Notes

Dense red color. Howell Mountain in its purest form, with minerality bursting from all comers. Aromas of asian spices, bright fruits and toast. Black fruits on the palate are framed by warm earth, rocky minerality and dried rose petals. The wine has a wonderful vibrancy, combined with great length.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Only 42 cases were made of this inaugural vintage, from the first two acres purchased. Deep garnet in color, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard has a gorgeous nose of crème de cassis, dark chocolate, anise and sandalwood with touches of game and Chinese five spice. Full-bodied, fine and fresh in the mouth, it fills the palate with spicy, maturing black fruit flavors, finishing long and savory.

Howell Mountain Wine

Napa Valley, California

Today Cabernet Sauvignon is the star of this part of Napa’s rugged, eastern hills, but Zinfandel was responsible for giving the Howell Mountain growing area its original fame in the late 1800s.

Winemaking in Howell Mountain was abandoned during Prohibition, and wasn’t reawakened until the arrival of Randy Dunn, a talented winemaker famous for the success of Caymus in the 1970s and 1980s. In the early eighties, he set his sights on the Napa hills and subsequently astonished the wine world with a Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Shortly thereafter Howell Mountain became officially recognized as the first sub-region of Napa Valley (1983).

With vineyards at 1,400 to 2,000 feet in elevation, they predominantly sit above the fog line but the days in Howell Mountain remain cooler than those in the heart of the valley, giving the grapes a bit more time on the vine.

The Howell Mountain AVA includes 1,000 acres of vineyards interspersed by forestlands in the Vaca Mountains. The soils, shallow and infertile with good drainage, are volcanic ash and red clay and produce highly concentrated berries with thick skins. The resulting wines are full of structure and potential to age.

Today Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Sirah thrive in this sub-appellation, as well as its founding variety, Zinfandel.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
