2004 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Produced Following Biodynamic Practices
  • Organic - Made from 100% Organic Grapes
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain Black Sears Winery (Angwin, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Thomas Brown
  • The 2004 vintage is exceptionally elegant and well rounded. It also has unusually bright, red fruit tones along with the plum and blackberry tones that Black Sears Cabernets are known for. There is a fresh tobacco leaf note with outstanding mid-palate richness and a soft, graceful finish. The tannins are well integrated, and this wine will drink much better at a younger age than is typical of this estate and of Howell Mountain in general. The goal of the Black Sears family is to produce estate... ...read more

    2007 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon View Label
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain Lamborn Family Vineyards (Oakville, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Heidi Barrett
  • The 2007 vintage produced some very concentrated, beautiful wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon is quite dark in color and shows off lush, ripe black cherries, plums, and a brambly wild blackberry fruit character that is distinct to Howell Mountain. The flavors mirror the aromas with pure black velvety fruit character. The wine is dense and concentrated, yet silky with good length. Tannins are lightly dusty. No doubt about the origin of this fruit - it's mountainside Cabernet at it's finest. Lovely a... ...read more

    2006 Estate Zinfandel
  • Produced Following Biodynamic Practices
  • Organic - Made from 100% Organic Grapes
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain Black Sears Winery (Angwin, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Thomas Brown
  • The 2006 vintage produced a wonderfully soft and delicious wine. A long, warm summer followed by a cool September gave the tannins plenty of time to mature by October 2nd when the grapes were picked. The resulting wine is elegant with aromas of Damson and Santa Rosa plums as well as blueberry, sweet cinnamon and clove. With air, lavender and rose petal appear. Finally, the characteristic orange zest finds the palate, one of the signature aromatic notes in zinfandels from this property. The wine ... ...read more

    2006 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain Cornerstone Cellars (Napa, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Celia Masyczek
  • This elegant Cabernet from high elevation vineyards shows the tremendous complexity of the Howell Mountain District. Sweet cocoa and cinnamon, spicy cedar bough and forest floor aromas, dark raspberries and perfume-like boysenberries all combine in a swirling, ever-changing display of aromas. On the palate, the entry is soft but laden with fruit, and then broadens to display the formidable structure and power of this very ripe Cabernet. Harvested between September 6th and October 6, 2004, ... ...read more

    2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain View Label
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain
  • Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Terrace (Calistoga, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Thomas Brown
  • Where the 2006 Diamond Mountain is a bit richer than its 2005 counterpart, this bottling is actually a bit pulled back from the previous edition. It still contains all the richer chocolate based elements of the first vintage but it shows a bit more Howell Mountain structure. There’s also the trademark spice component that mountain is famous for plus more of red fruit component that was absent in the 2005. The nose features notes of espresso roast, black cherries and black currants. The moc... ...read more
  • Acclaim: In 2008, Thomas became the youngest winemaker to achieve two "100 point" scores from Robert Parker for the '06 Schrader "Old Sparky" and CCS Cabernet Sauvignons. This is the first time two Cabs from the same producer in the same vintage have received two perfect scores.

    2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain View Label
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain Diamond Terrace (Calistoga, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Thomas Brown
  • We have officially fallen in love with this vineyard. This site balances fruit and structure perfectly. It contains all the flesh we pull out of our valley floor sites without completely forsaking its Howell Mountain origin. There’s still the trademark spice component that the mountain is famous for plus the espresso roast/mocha note that we are finding in the wine every year. The 2007 Howell Mountain has an extremely juicy, red and black fruited core which masks the structure in the wine ... ...read more

    2006 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain WaterMark (St. Helena, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Phil Steinschriber
  • This is an intense wine with notes of cassis, red and black fruit, vanilla, oak and toast. Excellent wine from the Howell Mountain appellation made by Phil Steinschriber, winemaker at Diamond Creek Vineyards
  • Acclaim: Phil has produced many wines scoring into the 90s and as high as 98. These wines are comparable to the wines he makes at Diamond Creek Vineyards.

    2005 Cabernet Sauvignon View Label
  • Appellation: Howell Mountain Villa Hermosa Cellars (Angwin, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Andy Schweiger
  • Showcasing the deep fruit character of Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain, this expressive wine presents elegant layers and refined tannins. On the nose, enticing aromas of blackberry and boysenberry mingle with hints of lilac and earthy spice. In the mouth, a warm, velvety entry flows to lush berry and stone fruits. Riding on a frame of supple tannins, the lengthy finish closes with waves of fruit, mocha and spice.
  • Acclaim: Villa Hermosa Cellars 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon received a "92" point rating from Wine Spectator, "91" points and two puffs in Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines, and a "90" point rating from Wine Enthusiast.
