Notre Vin Howell Mountain
Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé

Our Rosé, made by the saignée method of the Cabernet Sauvignon we harvest on Howell Mountain, is fermented in stainless steel drums in the cool cellar and aged on lees for up to 10 months.

Our 2010 Rosé expresses a lovely red raspberry color. The nose is expressive, fruitier than usual with the traditional berry aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry, even ripe peach together with more exotic notes such as litchi and passion fruit. Like the previous vintages it is a fully dry Rosé with a mouth-feel that is round with rewarding freshness that enhances the many layers. The finish is long with flavors of toast and brioche emerging from the stirring of the lees.

The 2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé is also made in the French dry style and shows a lovely color of bright raspberry juice. The nose is a delicious mélange of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries with a few pomegranate seeds. It has nice complexity and surprising depth, the texture is creamy with a pleasant lingering finish that makes this wine pair particularly well with food.
