2018 was a tremendous vintage in the Napa Valley and this new red wine cuveé shows all of the deep color, structure and complexity that one might expect from Howell Mountain. The generous portion of Merlot in the wine allows for a velvet, supple mouthfeel to go with the exotic nose, but make no mistake, this is a Bordeaux Blend from Howell Mountain with the ability to improve for decades in the cellar if called upon to do so.

The 2018 Howell Mountain Cuvée comes all from a mountainous terroir in the northern part of the valley and is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and the balance Malbec. Lots of plum, lavender, charcoal, and graphite notes define the nose, and it's medium-bodied, with a savory, slightly chewy texture and solid length on the finish. It's an enjoyable, chunky red to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
