A non-tannic Howell Mountain Cabernet

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 2014 vintage was sourced from their “tiny” 3 acre vineyard on Howell Mountain. With a little bottle aging time, this has turned into a real gem!

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!

Winemaker Notes: “This 2014 SPENCE Cabernet boasts deep, inky color and a cornucopia of highly aromatic black fruit encompassing wonderful rich berry and spice overtones that we on Howell Mountain are known for. Elegant, with a nose that eagerly leaps from the glass and a solid mid-palate loaded with fruit and subtle notes of spice. This 2014 Cabernet is balanced and seamless with abundant lushness and density. Drinking lovely now and aging will only continue to enhance your drinking pleasure.”
