Robert Craig - Cabernet Sauvignon - Howell Mountain
Overview: This wine comes primarily from our 9.5-acre Winery Estate Vineyard, with the
addition of old vine lots from Candlestick Ridge Vineyard. Both vineyards sit
at 2400’ along the summit ridge. The Howell Mountain AVA begins at 1400
feet and includes vineyards that sit above the inversion layer and fog line.
Considered our flagship release, the Howell Mountain Cabernet is the defining
wine of our portfolio—a rare and extraordinary bottling from a superb vineyard.
Though the tannin structure is off the charts each year, the tannins are supple
and round, allowing a measure of grace in youth for such a long lived wine.
Tasting Notes: Deep, dark nuances of iron, graphite and crushed rock dance around the core of black fruit that coat the palate.
Pairing: Steak, aged cheddars
Format/ABV: 750 ml/14.75%
