Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Rim to rim color density. Red and black cherries poke through cedar and sweet tobacco on the nose with dark chocolate chunks, plum, prune and date, toasted sesame, cinnamon, rose petal, and cardamom. Chewy tannins that roll satin-smooth initially, then cassis, black currant and licorice flip the script. Graphite and blackberry frame dark chocolate and mocha-tobacco, oak and black bread.

Howell Mountain Merlot 2018

Chalky grape and balsa, blackberry, and plum nose with soft smoke and jasmine with a sweet petrol gloss. Soft mouthfeel turns bing cherry and underripe blueberries bordering green. Chewy. Big fruit tannins. A spicy pepper that always turns piquant-fruit. Young in every way, would love to see this chrysalis emerge.

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Red, resinous currant with a licorice twist. Warm blackberry, dark toast, vanilla, cedar and sweet tabac seamlessly tailored, even at such a young age. Fresh gingerbread oven, too. Silk suit of tannins; loose stitching. Wound tightly showing sinewy potential and a Christmas cactus of sutured fruits bursting at the seams with liquid graphite and black currant reduction with fresh cassis and olive berry. Violets, treacle and black tea. Onyx train of a witch bride all the way down Howell mountain! #Dunn #DunnVineyards #napacab #napacabernet #Napa #howellmountain #howell #howellmtn #mountainwine #cabernetacademy #cabernetday #cabernetsauvignon #californiaclassic — 6 years ago

La Jota Vineyard Co.

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Soft, lovely, bread-y nose of black currant fur, licorice, light mint forcing upward, sprouting through potting soil. Cinnamon and blueberry warmly embraced by dark bread and small specks of black pepper. Fruit tannins thickly house-painted across your front teeth in a real sense. Muscle. Licorice-charcoal, bitters, blackberry, black currant, graphite-smoke halo, black cherry, oak and cedar, wound up and closed in places, but powerhouse lurking in the shadows.

Howell Mountain Malbec 2016

Nice Wines mountain #malbec from Napa - which in of itself is interesting. Wine pours an inky purple-black. This is one of the highest extract red wines I’ve ever tasted. 86% #mtveeder / 14% #howellmountain fruit. Luxuriant cassis, intense bramble fruit aromas. Despite the extraction, the mountain fruit brings fulfilling acid balance and plush tannins round out the finish. Delicious wine. — 3 years ago

I love wines like thjs because as I’m tasting it seems old world #cabernertsauvignon but if I took it back to Spain and tasted it six months or a year from now it would seem totally #californianwine #howellmountain #napavalley — 6 years ago

Elevation Howell Mountain Old Vine Petite Sirah 2012


#howellmountain #napaterroirisreal #petitesirah #dunn this is a big wine and I completely recommend decanting it first. Can definitely age. A Coravin won't give you a true idea of this wine, it needs to be uncorked. — 7 years ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc 2019

Lovely, smoky, mushroom-funk with ethereal violet perfume emanating from lemon madeleines. Perfect expression of cassis and blackberries and black cherry, touches of sweet tobacco reveal a jungle of verdant herbs. Amazing cab franc with the full spectrum of textures.

Trio Howell Mountain Merlot Blend 2012

Big mint chocolate, spruce, damson reduction, cinnamon dusted cedar, ripest blackberry, violet, vanilla bean and even a shadow of juniper on this warm and fuzzy Howell Mountain nose. Medium mouthfeel echoes the damson, presenting bay leaf, smoky raspberry, a touch of graphite and blueberry skins in a tightly rolled and endlessly layered sub-strata that stretches to the horizon. #Trio #bravantevineyards #howell #howellmountain #napavalleyred #napawine #Napa — 6 years ago
