Former Philadelphia Mascot, now estate lead host for Spire Collection Napa... haven't worked a day in my life!
2014, Thomas Rivers Brown as winemaker here but not his usual style of Cab, by that I mean that there is more acid and brightness than one would expect. Really nice expression of what Howell can do. Only about 200 cases made — 4 hours ago
2015 and 2016, power, finesse touch of oak but not too much. Amazing balance. May be my favorite chard in the valley now. Love that it is coming from El Molino Star vineyard in Rutherford.... RUTHERFORD people — 4 hours ago
2015, bright and nice hint of minerality nothing overly complex but a bargain for sure — 4 hours ago
2015 vintage is super bright red fruit and tons of acid, this will age like a fine barolo — a day ago
