The faceted, rocky elevations of Howell Mountain yield one of Hall's most prized appellation wines. Their 2011 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color and the nose combines vivid aromas of cassis liquor, balsam, incense, fresh crushed violets and fresh vanilla. The palate is seamless and polished with long silky tannins while still round and full-bodied, ending with a long, juicy finish. Meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard and in the cellar have preserved this precious jewel of a wine. Maturity at 15+ years.
