Product Description

The 2012 Duckhorn Howell Mountain Red Wine captures the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a complex and beautifully structured wine with aromas of wild berries, red currant, dried herbs and graphite. The aromas carry through to the firm, round palate, where they mingle with layered flavors of vibrant red fruit, slate and hibiscus.

Varietal Composition: 75 Cabernet Sauvignon, 19 Merlot, 5 Cabernet Franc, 1 Petit Verdot
Appellation: Howell Mountain AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 24 months in 100 percent French oak, 95 percent new.  Duckhorn aged the Howell Mountain Red an additional year longer in bottle than their other red wines.

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Deep, intense and well-structured, sharply focused on a tight-knit mix of gravelly earth, blackberry and wild berry notes, with touches of anise, licorice, dried herb and underbrush flavors, this ends with a burst of ripe fruit and dusty, fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030."

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"A big-shouldered red made predominantly of Cabernet Sauvignon with a balance of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine offers bold, firm tannins and heaps of body. Blackberry, chocolate mocha and clove flavors meet crayon and graphite notes in a mashup of classic and ripe styles."
