Duckhorn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The unique climate and soils on Howell Mountain are the key to the appellation’s success in producing powerful, age-worthy wines. To encourage further complexity, we bottle-age this wine a year longer than our other wines prior to release. As a result, our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon offers excellent structure and deep color. Explore current and past vintages of this wine.
A wine of power and grandeur, this mountain-grown Cabernet displays beautiful aromas of huckleberry, black cherry, brambly blackberry and plum, as well as notes of savory tobacco leaf and brown sugar. On the palate, the voluptuous fruit flavors are supported by robust mountain tannins and an age-worthy structure, with notes of candied red cherry, baking spice, cigar box and herbs adding layered complexity to a remarkably long finish.
