Brilliance in shades of deep shiny ruby and mahogany on the rim encourage a pause as you enjoy the sheer beauty of this wine. The explosion of aromas; lilacs ensconced in dark chocolate, layers of blueberry, graphite & maple syrup, will continue to enhance the experience. Finally, enjoy a dense, but soft entrance, concentrating on the palate with a fine granular tannic frame, with touches of chocolate powder, blackberry, fresh raspberry and Jordan almonds remaining with a long, delicious finish.
The 2011 Howell Mountain Zinfandel is from Black Sears Vineyard at 2400 ft blended with some Napa Valley Zinfandel. The altitude and unique soils of Howell Mountain help to create intense and complex wines. This wine shows the terrior it was born from while maintaining elegance and grace.
Bright, medium ruby color with purple overtones. The wine offers generous aromas of violet, plum, anise, cassis, and mint with restrained floral overtones. On the palate, the wine has well-balanced clean fruitiness. Elegant and light on the palate, with medium body and medium ripe tannins with juicy plum, cassis, blackberry, and dusty coffee notes in the background, all magnified on a long and subtle finish
This beautifully balanced mountain Cabernet Sauvignon starts with floral aromas and bright acidity with flavors of pomegranate and cranberry, and finishes with vanilla spice, nutmeg and anise with a lingering smooth tannin structure the whole way through that will delight the palate.
