2017 TORCIA Howell Mtn. Cabernet Sauvignon
Firm, deep, complex aromas of earthy cranberry, dried herbs, and dark red fruit speak to the challenging growing conditions against which mountain grown fruit initially strive, conquer and then flourish. The rich, dense and balanced character of Howell Mountain flows through to the palate, where red currant, black plum and mulberry suffused with a background of raspberry, joust with a core of fine tannin, crisp acidity and sweet toasty oak.
