“Rich and fragrant notes of blueberry and blackberry permeate the glass, accentuated by light mocha and vanilla undertones. The palate is greeted with deeply rich blue and black fruits, a whisper of tart cherry, and superseded by a dense and chewy lingering mouthfeel from front to back. The medium toast French oak accompanies the ‘Howell Mountain dust’ and moderate silky tannins. An enchanting mountaintop Cabernet, this lavish and elegant wine well-represents the remarkable Lamborn vineyard.” - Heidi Barrett, winemaker

"This sets the standard of what mountain Cabernet should be. With a cellar life of 20+ years but showing beautifully out of the bottle now, the bouquet is similar in its evolution in your glass. Rich notes of wild blueberry and currant, more concentrated and round thanks to the smaller vintage, open up to boysenberry, roasted coffee, and textured layers of vanilla - compliments of our medium toast French oak barrels. A rich and structured mouthfeel, thanks in part to the Lamborn vineyard’s celebrated fine tannin, carries this beautiful wine from beginning to end, with a long finish. Yet another extraordinary mountaintop Cabernet from Lamborn that will exceed your expectations!" - Heidi Barrett, winemaker
