Family Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is hand-picked in the cool mornings before dawn at our Cold Springs estate vineyard, ensuring fresh, delicious flavors. Aged in new French oak, this is a full-bodied wine with aromas of molasses, cherry and dark chocolate. Flavors of dried blueberry, pomegranate and creamy vanilla, along with firm, chewy tannins, enhance this smooth, balanced wine.

Download Fact Sheet
An immense, potent expression of rich, extracted Cabernet, this is juicy and layered, delivering tiers of red and dark berry notes and dusty, loamy earth flavors, with a backbone of cedary oak.
