Product description

The 2016 Howell Mountain Merlot is sourced primarily from a small section of our Candlestick Ridge Estate Vineyard along the northern boundary of the summit ridge of Howell Mountain. Volcanic, shallow soils and low yields lead to tiny berry size and intense flavors in the finished wines. For those of you who love the powerful, supple wines of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, this is a Merlot for you. We blend 20% Cabernet Sauvignon into this wine from less tannic lots to help soften this wine. The case production is tiny — less than 150. Many of you have discovered the beauty of this wine after coming into taste it for the first time. Don’t sleep on the 2016 release; there is only a little.
