Recognized for its high-altitude microclimate, Napa Valley's first sub-AVA produces distinctively structured Cabernet Sauvignon, and is home to some of the best red wine vineyards in the world. It's also loaded with hidden gems as Howell Mountain has never been a popular tourist destination, especially in relation to other districts like Oakville, Rutherford and Yountville. In fact, many people drive right through Howell Mountain without noticing, and most tours don't venture that far up the Silverado trail. It's a shame because Howell Mountain is known for some of the biggest, boldest, and most expensive wines in Napa.
"This Howell Mountain Red is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Wonderful flavors of cherry puree, blueberry, red licorice, black berry and anise. Great structure and a lengthy finish." The Wine Buyer, 93 Points
