2009 Roberts and Rogers Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Scores: 90+ CT:92.3 AVG: 92
The Howell Mountain Single Vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of carefully selected exceptional lots of the world famous hillside mountain fruit. The most desirable & acclaimed AVA in Napa Valley for Cabernet Sauvignon, this vineyard combines volcanic soil with the high elevation mountain terrain above the fog line. The fruit is exposed to sunshine for longer days & warmer nights providing even ripening and full maturity. This is a handcrafted big complex muscular Cabernet – opulent, bold, rich, and decadent, packed with intense, ripe jammy black fruit. Well integrated tannins from 24 months of 100% French Oak aging create a long flavorful finish.
