2010 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
This single-vineyard estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon is born in the vineyard blocks that surround the Robert Foley Vineyards winery facility at 2000 feet elevation on Howell Mountain. Inky dark in appearance, superbly ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors burst in a round and viscous mouthfeel, which resolves in a pleasant palate-coating experience. The finish may last for 30 minutes! Hector Lopez's golden touch in our estate vineyard has produced the best fruit I have ever worked with. This is my favorite wine, bar none. Production of the Howell Mountain Cabernet is very limited but worth the effort to take the ride! Another timeless wine, we'll be enjoying this for many years to come. And with more mature fruit beginning to come on line now from our newest vineyard on the property, the Howell Mountain Cabernet will hopefully not be in such a short supply as it has been in the past.
This wine is offered each February via allocation lottery to our mailing-list customers who have purchased from us in the previous year.
