The Howell Mountain release is considered Robert Craig’s flagship wine. The red volcanic soils of the area give this Cabernet a bramble berry character, with touches of spice. Pure fruit blueberry, tobacco, and soft forest floor are layered in a firm foundation of grippy tannins and a long finish. Pair this with rib eye and prepare to be blown away!
Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is another pure, elegant, classic wine from this estate. Blueberries, tobacco leaf, forest floor and underbrush notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied beauty that has ripe tannin, notable freshness, and again, awesome purity of fruit.
