Tasting Notes from JEB DUNNUCK, “There are 285 cases of the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is also inky colored and powerful, with textbook notes of crème de cassis, liquid violets, graphite, bay leaf, and crushed rocks. It’s deep, rich, incredibly long and powerful, with awesome structure and density. Sourced all from Howell Mountain and brought up in 80% new French oak, it’s a thrilling wine from this tiny estate that will keep for two decades or more.” JEB DUNNUCK 97 POINTS

Experience the pinnacle of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with Selah‘s Howell Mountain bottling. This exquisite wine embodies an unwavering pursuit of perfection, meticulously crafted from vine to bottle.



At the heart of Selah lies a three-acre vineyard artfully tended by acclaimed viticulturist Josh Clark. Revered throughout the Valley for his expertise, Josh coaxes the very best from this exceptional terroir. Recognizing a kindred spirit, the Blantons enlisted the masterful winemaking talents of Thomas Rivers Brown. Brown’s dedication to his craft echoes the relentless pursuit of excellence Joe Blanton displayed throughout his MLB career. Together, they’ve created a truly remarkable wine.

The 2016 Selah Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to this dedication. Eight years of graceful aging have yielded a wine of profound depth and classic concentration. Rich, sultry layers unfold on the palate, supported by impeccable structure and a lingering finish. With only 285 cases produced, this is a rare opportunity to secure a truly exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Notes from Antonio Galloni VINOUS, “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is an inky, rich, voluptuous wine. Raspberry jam, menthol, spice and new leather all blossom as this racy Howell Mountain Cabernet shows off its soft curves and inviting personality. Unusually flamboyant for a young Howell Mountain Cabernet, this pleasure bomb from proprietors Joe Blanton and his wife, LeeAndra and winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown will drink well pretty much right out of the gate.” VINOUS 95 POINTS

97pt Howell Mtn Masterpiece by Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown

During his tenure with the Oakland A’s, Joe Blanton cultivated a passion for wine, fostered by team dinners during away games. In 2014, Joe and his wife, LeeAndra, embarked on a vinicultural venture by acquiring a quaint vineyard near Howell Mountain’s summit. The Selah estate vineyard spans three acres and is meticulously cared for by esteemed hillside specialist Josh Clark, whose expertise is widely recognized in the Valley.

The Blantons enlisted Thomas Rivers Brown as their winemaker, drawn to an immediate connection with him; his winemaking style, cherished by them over the years, resonates with the same passionate vision Joe devoted to his baseball career.

Highly Recommend a full case to enjoy a 6-pack yourself, and perhaps share a few bottles with family & friends while entertaining!
