The connections that we make often result in discovering great wines that are somewhat unknown in the wine world, and one of the best examples is the 2015 GRO Howell Mountain Cabernet.  It’s a tiny project by Lars Bjorkman and Molly Hill. Lars’ day job is crafting the iconic Saddleback wines in Oakville where he works alongside legendary California winemaker Nils Venge.  He produced a whopping 80 cases of Howell Mountain Cabernet from a vineyard next-door to Dunn… 

This wine will likely sell out in a matter of hours, so if you’d like to add some to your cellar, time is of the essence.

The 2015 oozes with intense mulberry, blackberry cassis, freshly ground coffee, pencil shavings and black chocolates.

Winery Notes: “The 2015 vintage from Henry Brothers Vineyard is an intense year from an intense site.  Cabernet Sauvignon lovers will rejoice in this rich, inky, wine from a vintage that developed during the end of the drought years, when vines had to push through the red, volcanic soil to find water and nutrients in order to survive.  Tonnage was extremely light this year, on average 10 clusters per vine, so get this wine while you can.”
