This is a blend of Howell Mountain fruit and purchased valley floor fruit. It spent 32 months in new French oak. The resulting wine is more approachable young than Dunn's Howell Mountain offering and contains all the classic Napa Cab traits. You will find this to be an intensely flavoured and structured wine, with richly outlined dark fruit, herbal tones and that distinct pure cassis note so prevalent in Napa. This will reward 15+ years in the cellar.
