Cresta VeliaHowell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
A mere 211 cases were made of this gorgeous Howell Mountain Cabernet from Eagle Summit Vineyard, located next to Outpost Wines. John Giannini is the vintner/owner of Cresta Velia and this is one of the best Cabernets he’s produced yet. “The vineyard really shined in 2016. It is as self-regulating as a vineyard gets as far as fruit set and canopy management minus a few suckering passes. The fruit was pristine and needed almost no sorting. Dark ruby red in color with dark fruits, savory herbs and spicy black liquorice on the nose. Full bodied, rich and concentrated with plenty of acidity and tannins to help frame the dense fruit core at the wines center.” I HIGHLY recommend trying this outstanding 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon.
