I am very excited to work with Spence again, this little winery has become a real commodity and many among you have been asking for the next release. It is here! Finally. Another one of the “great” 2007 vintage wines! As you know, Spence is very small in quantity, but great in quality. This Mountain (thus Rock and the wine itself Rocks) winery will sell out by month’s end!
Spence 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain “Estate”

Many think that Howell Mountain is synonymous with Dunn’s big, tannic wines – wrong! Our friends at Spence have again produced another gem of a (elegant) wine. The 2007 vintage was sourced from their “tiny” 3 acre vineyard on Howell Mountain.
It is 100% Howell Mountain, but not a 100% tannic monster! The aromatics and flavors are delicious at impact! Black stone fruit with a hint on minerality jumps out of the glass. At impact one is greeted by (almost) sweet black currant fruit which are powerful, yet extremely elegant and refined. Winemaker Marco DiGiulio at his best! Very well-structured and balanced, with the right touch of acid meeting the right balance fruit at its equinox. This is a stunning vineyard, a stunning wine and with a production of 200 cases it will be gone in no time!
