The great challenge of Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder is taming those big, rustic tannins without losing the character of the fruit. Bringing in a little Oakville can help with that! The tannins here are well-integrated, making this approachable now, but it’s still structured enough for the long haul. Aromas of blackberry compote, crème brulee and cocoa lead into a plush palate with a vibrant finish.

Wine Enthusiast

"This is such an outstanding wine at any price, but here we're talking about outstanding value as well. Notes of iron and crushed rock lead to a lengthy balance of juicy red fruit and clove. With small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Saint-Macaire and Cabernet Franc, it shows a deft hand at blending, with lasting notes of black pepper and nuanced oak."

This has aromas of dried blueberries, currants, chocolate, sandalwood and black tea. It’s full-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins. Rich in flavor with a saline edge on the finish. Try from 2022.
