Duckhorn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: A Testament to Time and Terroir

Unveiling Duckhorn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that intricately weaves the richness of mountain-grown fruit with the artistry of meticulous winemaking. Deriving its character from the esteemed Howell Mountain, an area synonymous with crafting age-worthy and profoundly structured Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine is a celebration of both the legacy and the future of Napa Valley winemaking.

A Rich Heritage, A Distinct Flavor Profile:

For more than three decades, Duckhorn Vineyards has been intimately connected with Howell Mountain, embracing the unique terroir to craft wines of unmatched complexity and depth. The decision to bottle-age this wine for an additional year than its cellar mates is a testament to our commitment to producing wines that significantly benefit from patience, showcasing their full potential.

Exquisite Composition, Unparalleled Complexity:

With a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, this release presents an exquisite narrative of flavors and aromas. The nose is greeted with a luxurious array of dark mountain fruits, including hints of raspberry-filled chocolates, mulberry, and a symphony of huckleberry jam, enhanced with savory undertones of cedar and spice. The palate enjoys a journey through opulent layers of blackberry, fig, and black currant, with firm mountain tannins beautifully highlighting the wine’s richness and potential for aging. Bright, underlying acidity ensures that each sip finishes with poise and unrivaled finesse.

Crafted Through a Season of Rejuvenation:

The growing season that brought this wine into existence was one marked by nature’s beneficence—abundant winter rains followed by a warm, dry spring. Such conditions not only replenished the water table but also set the stage for an ideal budbreak and the development of robust canopies. Despite a heatwave accelerating the harvest, the subsequent cooling period allowed for prolonged hangtime, ensuring the development of flavors and the resolution of tannins. The result is a collection of grapes that were not just ripe but perfect for crafting plush, polished, and wonderfully complex wines.

A Journey of Taste, A Moment in Time:

Uncorking a bottle of Duckhorn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is not just enjoying a wine; it’s embarking on a journey that pays homage to the intricacies of winemaking and the distinctiveness of Howell Mountain terroir. Whether you’re a collector seeking wines with aging potential or an enthusiast eager to experience the opulence of mountain-grown fruit, this Cabernet Sauvignon promises to elevate your appreciation for Napa Valley’s finest. Let each glass serve as a celebration of the dedication, the land, and the unmistakable mark of Duckhorn Vineyards.
