2011 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. The 2011 vintage produced remarkable balance and maturity for our estate-bottled Cabernet. Inky dark in appearance, this wine's aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry and currant flood the palate with balanced natural acidity and gently gripping tannins. Seamlessly even across the mid-palate, this mountain Cabernet maintains an elegance all the way through the long finish with hints of black licorice. Delicious in its youth, this bottling will reward the enthusiast with bottle aging for decades to come.
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.
