The 2017 Howell Mountain Merlot is sourced primarily from a small section of the Candlestick Ridge Estate Vineyard along the northern boundary of the summit ridge of Howell Mountain. Just beautiful up-front fruit merges with tremendous flesh and powerful structure, providing the scaffolding necessary to age Merlot into its next glorious phase in bottle. Dense mouthfeel combines with deep color, tremendous flesh and powerful structure in this gorgeous example of Napa Valley Mountain Merlot. 2017 captures the dark, intense fruit from our Candlestick Ridge Vineyard. Will cellar for decades.
