Outer quote mark The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is deep garnet-purple in color. Scents of blackcurrant jelly, Morello cherries, and black raspberry spring from the glass, leading to wafts of underbrush, pencil shavings, and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock full of expressive black berry and earthy layers, supported by grainy tannins and a lively line, finishing on a lingering mineral note.

Outer quote mark The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is made in a firm, tannic, classic style. Mixed cherries appear on the nose, accented by hints of pine needles. Only medium-bodied, it's structured and streamlined, with ample length and dusty tannins on the finish. (JC) 92+ Inner quote mark (12/2023)

Outer quote mark The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain reveals a vivid purple/ruby hue as well as a beautiful nose of fresh plums, darker berries, graphite, leafy herbs, and underbrush, with some classic Howell Mountain tannins and structure on the palate. Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it's nicely balanced, has good freshness, and an outstanding finish. Inner quote mark (12/2023)

From sustainably farmed vineyards above 1500 feet on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sees 20 months in 50% New French oak & 50% 2-Year old oak. Deep purple color and a medium to full body with black raspberry and cherry notes. Firm tannins with subtle oak and vanilla. Great to pair with grilled steak and vegetables and hearty stews. Enjoy now or cellar for a decade, this is a really powerful wine and a real steal at this price.

It has been a while, but here we are again with another incredible offer from our friends at Grand Napa. This producer is anchored around their small estate property called Stone Crib Vineyard in Rutherford, however strong connections around the valley allow them to tap into some phenomenal fruit sources in just about all of the most prestigious AVAs. Out of the 2021 releases I just loved the Howell Mountain bottling. From a vineyard that can't be named, this wine delivers the goods; real Howell character - deep, brooding blue and black fruit, mulberry, blackcurrant, graphite, leather, camphor, and mountain thyme. Muscular tannins true to its mountain terroir, are nicely polished by 20 months rest in 50% new French oak cooperage adding luxurious toasted spices and hints of vanilla. It's a bold and powerful wine, the team at Grand Napa have done an excellent job encapsulating what makes Howell Mountain such a special place to grow Cabernet. Once again, we've struck a deal with them to offer this wine at a ludicrous discount to our Insider's Advantage mailing list members. We can't show the price online, but believe me when I say, VERY rarely do you get Howell Cabernet anywhere near this price point!
Top Value! Drink from 2024 to 2040
