Las Posadas Vineyard: This spectacular mountain site features 9-acres of Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 in dense 3’ x 5’ spacing. The dry, volcanic tufa soils drain rapidly, forcing vine roots to plunge deep into the mountainside in search of water. The struggling vines produce sparse clusters and small berries with intense flavor and color.
This rugged, mountain appellation produces wines that are characteristically dense and full-bodied with pronounced black fruit flavors. In the glass, Howell Mountain Cabernets introduce a savory herbal note matched with brambly dark berry flavors and aromas, complexity and pronounced tannins.
