Duckhorn Howell Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Recognized as one of the Napa Valley’s most acclaimed winegrowing regions, grapes from Howell Mountain are famous for producing age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons with rich, deep color and excellent structure. To encourage further complexity, we bottle-age this mountain-grown wine one year longer than our other wines prior to release.

A wine of power and grandeur, this mountain-grown Cabernet displays beautiful aromas of huckleberry, black cherry, brambly blackberry and plum, as well as notes of savory tobacco leaf and brown sugar. On the palate, the voluptuous fruit flavors are supported by robust mountain tannins and an age-worthy structure, with notes of candied red cherry, baking spice, cigar box and herbs adding layered complexity to a remarkably long finish.
