Over the past 150 million years, the Napa Valley was formed by tectonic plate movement and volcanic activity – extreme geological activity that created soil diversity unparalleled by any other wine region in the world. It is largely this diversity that allows for remarkably complex and outstanding wines to be crafted. In tribute to the resilient formation of the Napa Valley, Fortitude is a blend of the finest vineyards throughout Napa in which each vineyard adds another layer of rich complexity to our wine.
Howell Mountain belongs to the volcanic mountain range that flanks Napa Valley on its east side. This wine captures the rich, powerful flavors of Howell Mountain, with complexity from a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon clones. Matches boldly flavored foods, like strip loin steak with wild mushrooms and roasted fingerling potatoes.
