Notre Vin Howell Mountain
Cabernet Sauvignon Opportunité

This is our interpretation of a Late Bottled Vintage Port style wine, made entirely with sundried Cabernet Sauvignon berries from the Howell Mountain Vineyard.

The 2006 vintage is densely dark purple. The nose is sweet and spicy with the typical bouquet of Port wine with dried fruit, figs, apricots and walnut with lovely hints of cocoa and candied orange peel. The wine is complex, intense, yet refined and smooth with flavors of cherry pit, clove and cinnamon. We also find delicate aromas of pear, litchi and linden flowers originating from the 80 year old Cognac we used to stop the alcoholic fermentation. You may enjoy this wine on its own or with your favorite chocolate dessert.
