Vineyards:
Made exclusively from grapes grown at Rocky Ridge Vineyard on Las
Posadas Road. The southwest facing slope of the vineyard crests at
1650 feet above the valley floor—beyond the reach of cooling fog and
afternoon heat spikes. White tufa and red loam soil are studded with
rhyolitic rock for excellent drainage. This cool site is the last
vineyard we pick each year, usually near the end of October. We
source clone 191 and clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon from Rocky
Ridge.

Winemaking:
The grapes were handpicked, fully destemmed and meticulously
sorted before being moved to a single closed-top stainless tank for
fermentation. After a four-day cold soak, the tank was inoculated and
then pumped over 2-3 times a day for 16 days before being gently
pressed at dryness. After 13 months of aging, we selected our favorite
5 barrels from the lot. Those barrels were then blended and returned
to barrel for an additional 6 months of age before being bottled
unfiltered and unfined.

Tasting Notes:
The medium to full bodied 2019 Howell Mountain Cabernet pours a
nearly opaque deep red. Its bouquet explodes with cherry, anise and
classic cedar. The pallet is lush and envelopes the mouth with red
berry flavors and round tannins all framed by fresh acidity that
ensures that this wine will age gracefully for years to come.
