2016 Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

$99.95
(Net Item - no discounts apply)

This Cabernet has all the strength and power of the mountain it was grown on! Beautiful aromas of wild huckleberry and brambly blackberry are wrapped in tobacco leaf and dusted with brown sugar. Robust mountain tannins and age-worthy structure earn this a spot in your cellar. Savor the first bottle through the long, spiced finish, but set one or two aside for future enjoyment – you'll thank yourself later.

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.
