Nose

enchanting aromas of plum, cassis, olive and char. Red and black fruit flavors mingle beautifully with green olive, basil and pepper.

Palate

A vibrant acidity marries with plush, coating tannins that expand through the midpalate to a finely contoured finish. Enticing in its youth, and the Howell Mountain structure allows you to cellar this wine for years to come.

Aging

French oak barrels (58% new, 42% once-used)
