White Cottage Ranch Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005
We are extremely excited and proud to be releasing this vintage of our premium Howell Mtn. Cabernet Sauvignon. It is the first to have been vinted and bottled in our new winery in 2005. With the entire production on-site, we have been able to put even more detail into handcrafting this wine. The fruit came from specially chosen blocks of the vineyard and took over 18 different 'pickings' to ensure the peak of ripeness. 15 months in French oak have finished it off beautifully. We feel this is possibly one of the best Cabernets Dennis has made. Rose petal is the first aroma of this wine, leading into rich mocha and black pepper spice. On the palate, deep fruit flavors of blackberry finish with toasted honey oats. It also has the iconic characteristics of the minerality that comes from Howell Mtn. soil. Robust and well balanced, this wine is beautiful out of the bottle now and will gain even more complexity over the next few years. We encourage you to enjoy it quietly in your most cozy easy-chair or in celebration with family and friends. Cheers!
