2013 Duckhorn 'Howell Mountain' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$99.95

Duckhorn was kind enough to share this little rarity with us; this wine is available only here at Bounty Hunter (as part of our Legends of the Spring Pack) and at the winery. Soft and mineral, this sports notes of bay, mountain underbrush, and blackberry. A gorgeous red that will reward 10 years in the cellar. 

As Duckhorn Vineyards approaches their 40th anniversary, the estate’s reputation has never been better. Ask any wine lover, and they’re sure to know the name Duckhorn. That’s at least due, in part, to their dedication to making great Merlot as a stand-out varietal wine from the beginning. They were the first house to take Merlot seriously, and their efforts were rewarded by essentially becoming the benchmark for that varietal in California. If there was going to be one high-end Merlot on a sommelier’s wine list, more often than not, it was Duckhorn. Dan and Margaret Duckhorn founded Duckhorn Vineyards in 1978 with several hundred cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and have long been recognized as one of Napa Valleys’ leading lights as a premier producer of Bordeaux varietal wines.
