2002 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

by David on June 24, 2005

Howell Mountain Cabernet bottleThis classic Cabernet is from Howell Mountain, one of Napa Valley’s most prestigious mountaintop appellations. This vintage presents a complex nose of black cherries, cherry cordial, oak spice, elegant floral scents and a hint of sweet tobacco. This is a tremendously concentrated wine with luscious chocolate, black currant, blackberry, plum and strawberry flavors… rounding off with wonderful chewy tannins.

Food Suggestions
Our winemaker, Geoff Gorsuch, suggests pairing this marvelously bold wine with spicy Italian dishes with red sauce, flank steak, rib eye, New York, and T-bone steak, pork or beef ribs, a variety of grilled, sausages, beef stew, or roast beef. For dessert, try it with chocolate-dipped strawberries or other fruits with chocolate fondue.
