2015 MISC. “HOWELL MOUNTAIN” CABERNET SAUVIGNON, TWO BARREL PRODUCTION
In a debate over whether micro-produced wines have the potential to be better than those with larger production, there are several points to look at. When a winemaker can focus his or her abilities on just a few barrels of wine, they’re able to truly guide the wine from grape all the way to bottle, focusing on every minute detail. For winemaker Grant Long Jr, the idea that he could hand-select only two barrels of each wine, each appellation with its own set of unique flavors and textures, and then focus on them individually to create epic wines at a whole new level is what gave him the inspiration to create misc.
After spending around 20 months in French oak barrels the 2015 Misc. Oakville Cabernet has developed flavors that are incredibly deep and compelling, yet sensual and pure… An idyllic expression of its origin, and with just two barrels produced, I strongly recommend adding a case to your cellar. You’ll be glad you did…

Winery Notes: "Located high above the fog line of Napa Valley, this clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in a distinctive appellation. Minimal cluster counts of this vintage, combined with concentrated small berries, resulted in a classic big mountain Cabernet. Notes of blueberry, black cherry, violet and hibiscus are at the forefront. Hints of chocolate and cola round out the palate with a flattering texture and tannin structure."
