Bravante 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

The Bravante 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Howell Mountain fruit, which is one of California’s most sought after, ultra premium wine growing regions. Located in the mountains east of St. Helena, this Napa Valley appellation is home to some of the most renowned wineries in California. The Bravante 2005 Cabernet has the deep, bold flavors and structured tannins for which Howell Mountain is famous, but this wine also exhibits a velvety quality that allows it to be enjoyed earlier than many of its neighbors. This Cabernet is juicy with notes of cassis and black cherry, and brimming with deeper bramble fruits that mingle with signature cedar and cinnamon. The oak is subtle, and doesn’t overpower the fruits, just mingling enough to add a gentle backbone behind the fruit tannin. Enjoy with roast lamb or grilled porterhouse. [+]
